Red plaid skirt

Today’s theme is about patterns, and my nails are inspired by a classic plaid pattern in red and white with black stripes.

For me the pattern is associated with a short red plaid skirt, and that’s why I did an accent nail, where I painted a tiny black belt with buttons :) The belt ,as well as the stripes are painted freehand using a thin nail art brush.

I used OPI Big Apple Red as a base red color, which is imo a classic red nail polish, always appropriate and timeless. I’ve already used 2/3 of my Big Apple Red and I’m thinking of buying another bottle of it :) For the accent I used OPI Alpine Snow, a pure white creme, here it is in the pic:

On my nails:

  • Lumene Gloss and Care base
  • OPI Big Apple Red
  • OPI Alpine Snow
  • Black and white acrylic paints
  • Clear top

So, it was my interpretation of Day 26: Inspired by a pattern, and I hope you liked my red plaid nails :) I must admit, that I did plaid nails for the Challenge a year ago (for the “Stripes” theme), you can see the design here. I thought that since I’ve already failed the Challenge, and that manicure was posted so long ago, it would be ok to do plaid pattern again :D
Thank you for reading, and see you soon! xxx

  4. I don’t know why but my first thought when I saw the manicure was a naughty school girl :D I guess plaid is often associated with school uniforms
