If there’s one thing that I love it is nail art and going back to University inspired me to do a post on noughts and crosses nail art. I hope that you enjoy this tutorial.
Note: Sorry for the poor quality of photos it was a cloudy day and my camera was playing up.
You Will Need:
A black nail polish (I’m using Rimmel London I Love Lasting Finish Nail Polish in Black Cab)
A white thin tipped polish or a white nail art pen or a white polish and a toothpick (I’m using Barry M Nail Art Pen in White)
A Matte Topcoat (I’m using Manhattan Pro Mat Topcoat)
Step One – Paint all of your nails black
The first thing to do for this tutorial after applying your basecoat is to paint your nails black. I’ve used Rimmel London’s I Love Lasting Finish Nail Polish in Black Cab. Ensure that the polish is opaque and dry completely before moving onto the next step.
Step Two – Create white patterns on nails
Using your white polish or nail art pen draw a large hashtag on your thumbnails then draw x’s and o’s on your other nails if you like you can also include a line through one of them. For this step I used Barry M’s Nail Art Pen in White.
Step Three – Apply matte topcoat and allow to dry
The final step is to apply your matte topcoat this will tone down your black polish and add a cool blackboard effect to your nails. Once you have allowed the topcoat to dry you are finished and it’s as easy as that!
