Pastel Diamond

Hello, hello! It has been quiet around here, if you noticed. I was quite distracted last week, but now I'm back and ready to post more nail art and swatches :)
Today I'm playing with some of the new ILNP (I Love Nail Polish) I got from the spring collection. I know.. but it's already fall, you say. First of all, I don't wear my polish based on season, I wear anything, anytime I want. And it's spring somewhere, right? haha.

This is a quick and easy design, done with scotch tape and striping tape. I started this mani with 2 coats of Cutie Pop. Then I placed 2 pieces of striping tape forming a narrow chevron, or a V shape, and 2 more pieces of striping tape placed from the middle of both V lines towards the opposite end of the nail, forming a diamond shape in the center. 
Next step, I placed scotch tape on both outer side of the V shape, leaving a little bit of space, you can also choose to use striping tape for this, just have to be careful when doing the next step to not go over the lines. 
Then I painted over the tape with Bikini Bottoms, and Charmingly Purple for the accent nail, and remove the tapes right away when the polish is still wet, top coat, and we're done!

I Love Nail Polish line can be purchased directly from their website, they ship worldwide! :)
