The Bow Mani | The Beauty Department The Beauty Department just keeps pumping out these gorgeous manis and I’m totally in love with this one! Is it just me or does this remind you of a Tiffany’s box?! If you don’t own a nail art pen, my lovely readers suggest using instead the thinest paint brush you can find instead. Cheaper and it means any of your nail polishes can become a ‘pen’!
1.Start by painting the nails white. 2.paint blue, pink, green or whatever color you love on a piece of tape. Wait for it to dry and cut it into thin strips. You’ll need 6-10 strips per finger. 3.Lay 3-5 strips horizontally on the nail. 4.Then lay the other 3-5 strips vertically. 5.Trim the excess with cuticle nippers. 6.Apply a quick drying top coat to seal your gingham pattern.
