Jonqal pattern nail art with step by step tutorial

Hello lovelies,

Today I have here another patterned nails with tutorial - the Jonqal pattern. After the basket weave I kinda fell in love with these and you can look forward to more designs like this. I hope you'll like them! Don't worry I will do different techniques as well and of course swatches too.

So for this manicure I have used Pixi Evening Emerald, white acrylic paint and Seche Vite Fast Drying topcoat. You could do it with nail polish instead of the acrylic paint but I find it easier to work with. And of course dark colour over light would be probably more opaque.

What do you think? Do you like patterns on nails?

  15. It looks really cute from a distance but up close you can see through the white =/ I think this would be great for accent nails though. =)
