HAY Grid Nail Design

Hellooo! Oh yeah uhm, have you noticed I'm actually here again? :) So... Not long ago it was my birthday, and one of my gifts was this really pretty grid pencil case from the Danish design company HAY. I got it from my older sister, and it came along with other various sized Zip It folders in the same style. The beautiful design inspired me to recreate it on my nails - and why yes, of course I did!

First of all I applied my current favorite base coat Nail Foundation by Butter London. The next step is to do one coat of a see-through white polish, I guess like a white jelly :) When it's dry just paint on those black lines girl! I used acrylic paint which in my opinion is way easier to manage than polish, but if you don't have that on hand then polish is totally fine too! :) Use a nail art brush, a striper or a toothpick. Be careful not to smudge those fine lines when you apply your normal top coat - I used Dior's Gel Coat. Oh wait, there's one last step! When your mani is completely dry, finish off with a matte top coat to get that same surface texture as the pencil case on your nails :) Alright! Get ready for some photo-spam!

Lol sorry about the second photo being so blurry! I LOVE spending time with my new camera/best friend :) Can't wait to shoot even more photos in the future! It's all new to me again, so please bear with me for a little while ;) Take care guys!
