Winter Sweater Nails

These were inspired by a pair of gloves I got for Christmas this year! They took forever to do but I think they were worth the work! I've never attempted anything as complicated as this, and I was a bit intimidated to say the least. (It took me forever to get going!) I started by using striping tape to make the lines across my nails (I wasn't about to try to freehand that) and found the smallest brush possible to make the chevron design on my ring finger and squiggly line on my pointer and pinky. Once all that was dry I added the dots and used Eva's (CoewlessPolish) amazing Fair Isle Snowflake tutorial to make the snowflake on my middle finger.

Background: China Glaze "Recycle"
White: China Glaze "White On White"
Blue: China Glaze "Aquadelic"
Orange: Sephora by OPI "Cover Me In Petals"
