Zig-Zig-Ziggity Zag Lines
I had so much fun doing tutorials this month. I'm sad to see the challenge end.. but you know I'm going to keep doing them on my own, because that's how I roll.
I started this one with LynBDesigns Oobleck, a pretty mint with a subtle shimmer. Probably could have used another coat..
Have you ever wanted to do zig-zag nails, but couldn't figure out how to make the lines all match up? Or, have you ever wanted to do nail art while drunk? This technique may be for you! I used the tutorial from Nail Art 101 tutorial for zig-zag nails.
Start by making dots in a grid across and down the nail. Don't start drinking until after this step, or it'll go wonky.
Or, heck, drink first. That would make for a pretty interesting nail art, I'm thinking.
If you ever played cheeseboxes as a kid, it's kinda like that, only on the diagonal.
I went towards the tip first, so the next line goes towards the nail bed. You can go whichever way you want to start.
Ok, not perfect.. but you don't know how much I'd been drinking, either. This could be a very good nailart, if you look at it like that.
This really needs topcoat for the black to pop!
If you use yellow, you can make Charlie Brown's shirt.

Do you like making zig-zag lines or chevrons? Does this make it easier? It did for me! Now... is it 5 o'clock yet?
