For these fun plaid nails, I first painted all my nails this navy blue. Then, since I didn’t have a thin brush for the navy, I used thin nail tape to block off the navy stripes in the plaid. I probably should have used two pieces side by side since I couldn’t make my other lines as thin with the brush.
Once the nail tape is down, use a bright red to paint over those nails. Mine was dulled down by the navy base coat, so that’s why a bright red might be best.
After the red is dry, very carefully paint on white stripes & then black.
Once the black & white are relatively dry, take off the nail tape slowly.
Lastly, use top coat (or nail glue if you prefer) to apply oval studs.
