3. Quilted Nail Art Design
Making quilted blankets is not an easy job, but doing quilted nail art design surely is! This textured 3D nail art design can be done in two ways, either by using a dental flosser or a nail art striping tape!
Here is how to do it with a dental flosser :-
- Apply two to three, very thick coats of a base nail colour.
- When the nail lacquer is semi dry, carefully use the flosser to make 3 indents on the nails diagonally through both sides. Don't apply too much pressure!
- Make sure that the design looks uniform, just like a quilted blanket.
The quilted nail art will look absolutely adorable when done as an accent nail art. You may use silver or golden nail art beads on the connecting points of the indented lines for more of that 3D sort of effect!
