Nail Art Tutorial: Abstract Squares

Hello everybody!
Man, I´m bad at finding names for my designs :D Anyway, here is another tutorial for you guys, and it´s very simple ;) I started off with 2 coats of Flormar - 50, a really gorgeous metallic green. It´s so hard to catch the color in the photos, I think I took over 30 pics and not one was even near color accurate. So I just edited one of them, and here it is:
It´s beautiful! And the application was a dream :) I could have used just one coat to make it opaque, but I wanted to be sure ;) In the next pictures I didn´t edit the color, cause it was to time-consuming. Huge difference, isn´t it ?
First step: Take a small Nail Art Brush and a color of your choice and draw some lines and squares. Do different sizes, so it seems more random. Now let it dry a bit and in the meantime you can choose another color to work with :)
Clean your brush or take another one, and do the same thing you did before, with your second color. Overlap the lines you did before and draw new squares, it´s up to you how many. Now if you overlapped some lines more than once, you can take your first color again - here it´s the black - and paint over the white line, so that it seems a little bit 3D. I did this on my ring finger, at the tip, but it´s not very visible. Does any of this explanation make sense to you ? I hope so :P Once your done, let it dry for a minute and finish your manicure with a TC. 
I hope this tutorial was helpful and let me know what you think about it ;) 
Thanks for reading and see ya next time! :-*

  2. This is such a cute design! My camera does not photograph blues at all. So I know how frustrating it can be.
