When I thought this look up, I just thought it was perfect - because it's so simple, but so on trend right now. I'm really into my crosses, you may have seen my favourite double finger cross ring in a lot of my posts! I thought the black and white was a brilliant classic combo, but if you wanted to make it more Spring, you could easity swap the base colour from black to a lilac, mint green, lemon...
So basically, I applied one coat of black nail varnish, I used my cheap Wilkinson's £1 nail varnish - which dries super fast but chips off even quicker :/ I then took my favie, Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in white and drew a thick line down the centre of the nail, making sure I was going over evenly so the line was really bold. I then did the same with the horizontal line to create the cross. Then, repeated on each nail.
I learnt something about the Sally Hansen pen this time round. I have often found in the past that if you do not use a top coat with these pens, your design will basically wash a way as soon as you rinse you hands. However, I now realise why! This is for the purpose of trial and error. So, if you make a mistake, you can just dab it away with a small amount of nail varnish remover on tissue/cotton pad and redo with out having to take the whole nail off and start again! Amazing!!
But when you do apply your top coat, remember to wait until the nail pen is thoroughly dry - because the clear polish can just as easily smear the design away as well!!
Btw, I've uploaded a new youtube video on how I contour and highlight! Hope it's useful!
