Textured Criss-Cross Nails

Hi everyone!

I was looking through some of my previous posts when I saw this textured crisscross look and decided to create something similar using a different colour combination. Painted Fingertips | Textured criss-cross tipsI started with a base of ILNP Birefringence (H) and once it was dry, I added striping tape in a criss-cross pattern. I still need some practice applying it straight, but I still like how it looks. Painted Fingertips | Textured criss-cross tipsI applied Rimmel Shooting Star from their Space Dust collection over the tape, and then peeled it off. I added a rhinestone at the base of each nail to finish off the look. Painted Fingertips | Textured criss-cross tipsTextures are so much fun! I’d love to know – do you prefer this, or my original green, brown and gold look?Painted Fingertips | Textured criss-cross tips
