Herringbone Nail Art with CG So Blue Without You

I've wanted to try out some herringbone nail art forever but every time I sit down to do my nails I never remember to do them! I think it's because for the longest time I didn't know what they were called so it made googling them reallllll hard ;) LOL

Well that's about to change now!

I didn't have any idea in mind when I decided to do my nails the other day and by some stroke of brilliance I actually remembered that "chevron-esque, trapezoid, nail art thingy" and after an hour of searching on the web I finally found out what they were called and set off to do my own.

I started with a base of China Glaze So Blue Without You, I absolutely adore this blue! When it dried I drew out the "blueprint" for the design using black acrylic paint and a nail art brush. I filled in the appropriate spots with black and white acrylic paint, sealed it in with some Essie Good To Go and the design was finished. 

I have to say the design was a lot easier to create then I thought it would be, and I'm pretty excited that the lines came out as clean as they did. I mean I still have a lot more practicing to do but I'm proud of my first attempt. 

Thanks loves :)
