DIY: Disco Nails

imageNail art is so fun and cheers me up whenever I’m tapping away at my computer. Wah Nails up in Dalston are the queens of awesome and following them on Instagram is a great feed of colourful inspiration. This is their basketweave nail pattern which – with a steady hand – is easy and fun to DIY at home.

First paint your nails a base colour – I went for Models Own Gold Rush and let it dry properly.

Then using a nail pen – I used Models Own Nail Art Pen in Black – drawn a diagonal line across your nail. Then do one or two below it parrallel, depending on how much room you have. Then do diagonal lines in the other direction below drawing horizontal lines across the top. Here is a terrible Paint image to demonstrate.

I think this would also look good in different colourways – maybe deep blue with white? Or navy with white stripes for a nautical look?
