I started off painting my nails with A-England's Dragon, I hadn't used A-England polishes in a while and I forgot how amazing and flawless they were. Then, I stumbled upon this amazing post by The Polished Elegance that feature the plaid pattern. I knew I had to try it.
My thumb I tried to free-hand the green squares, and though I managed it I wasn't as satisfied, so I tried tape for my ring finger. The results were much crisper lines. I then added in the gold detail with a striping brush using A-England Holy Grail (Old).
For the other fingers, I decided to add in some gold and silver studs that I got from BornPretty Store so as not to leave them so plain. Topped it all off with 2 coats of Revlon's Quick Dry topcoat for the nice shiny finish.
I'm very proud of how this came out and am determined to try out more plaid designs in the future, maybe with Christmas coming up, it's very holidayish, isn't it?
