To do these plaid nails, I first painted my thumbs & middle fingers dark grey. Then painted my pointer & pinky fingers light grey. Then painted my ring fingers black. Next, I used Kiss Nail Art Paint (they have thin brushes) to do a plaid design on my pointer & pinky. You can use these in any order you like but I used black, then white, then silver. Lastly, I used top coat to apply diamond shaped nail decals to the rest of my nails.
