Beauty | Manicure Monday (on a Tuesday): Houndstooth nail art

Nail art inspiration can sometimes be hard to find. I found myself with a terrible case of nail artist block on Sunday night (see what I did there?) and was unable to produce something worthy of a Manicure Monday post. I found my mojo on Monday afternoon (via a houndstooth nail art tutorial on Tumblr) and come up with this design.

Houndstooth paired with red accents is a classic combination and I decided to give it the nail art treatment. The first houndstooth tutorial I found didn’t work out (three times I tried and three times I failed) so I decided to use a tutorial from Nail Nerd. Click here for the tutorial.

For this manicure I used Essie in Snap Happy, Rimmel London French White Tip Pro in French White and H&M Nail Polish in Black.
