Day 161) Nail art modern chic

Today it is time for a more graceful nail art.

Here is my step-by-step:

Step 1:
After the basecoat apply a white nail polish.
Step 2:
Divide your nails diagonal in half with a light pink polish; from top right corner to bottom left corner. You can do this freehand or use tape for it. Apply a topcoat to shorten drying time.
Step 3:
Use striping tape to divide the light pink half into a checkered pattern.
Step 4:
Apply a darker pink nail polish on top of the checkered pattern.
Step 5:
Remove the striping tape.
Step 6:
Apply a silver glitter nail polish, leaving the white part in a kind of V-shape.
Then use a triangular rhinestone to accentuate this V-shape. I used my topcoat as glue for the rhinestones.
