Satisfied with Sparkly

This design took FOREVER to paint. My glitter polish I liked best took about 5 coats to be a full glittered nail, so that was frustrating. The design was the easy part, interestingly enough. The pattern with just lines, (shown below) I painted on every nail to begin with. To do that part, I began by painting three horizontal lines across the nail. Then, I drew a diagonal line and drew another line mirrored so it made a triangle, and built line-by-line from there until it was all triangular. The white nails, I filled in all the triangles facing upwards. They looked fancy enough to wear to an occasion, try it yourself!

I used:
base-nicole by OPI #321-scandel secrets & sparkle
design-sinful colors nail art #1638-bad chick
