DIY | LOUIS VUITTON INSPIRED CHECK NAIL ART

5.19.2013
When Lucky Magazine asked me to put together a DIY perfect for spring, I immediately thought of the checkerboard trend that was beautifully done by Louis Vuitton. Here, I show you how to easily incorporate this trend with nail art. Full tutorial after the break...


(Outfit: Zara blazer (similar here) and cobalt shorts (similar here))

Materials:
- white nail polish 
- clear, top coat nail polish 
- cuticle nipper or small scissors
- black plastic party bag

Steps: 
1. Paint your nails with the white nail polish. Using black plastic party bags (black and white striped bags, like mine, will also work), cut 6 thin black strips about 1” long. Then, add a clear topcoat to the nail you would like the checkerboard nail art on.
2. Place three black strips horizontally, equally spaced from eachother on the desired nail. Add another top clear topcoat to this nail. Then, place three black strips vertically on the same nail.
3. Place three black strips horizontally, equally spaced from eachother on the desired nail. Add another top clear topcoat to this nail. Then, place three black strips vertically on the same nail.  Finish with a final clear top coat to seal in place.

Thanks again to Lucky Magazine for the amazing feature (here)!!!
