Interlocking suedes

Hi ladies~ I saw this the interlock nail art over at Nail Polish Wars agessssssssssss ago and finally decided to try it out. Because I'm lazy, I went with suede polishes - love their fast drying time ♥

I started off with two coats of OPI Russian navy suede and Lincoln park after dark suede, alternating the base colour for each nail. I then went back and free handed the tip half of the nail with the second shade. For the interlock look, I dotted the opposite shade along the diagonal line. For a better description and tutorial, check out my link to Nail Polish Wars! :P

I'm not sure I love how this turned out, might have to try this again with different polishes :) What do you think of the design though?

Thanks for reading.

  3. The design is really cool, but perhaps the colours don't really pop. It does give a really edgy look, so i think it's great though. :D Reminds me of jigsaw puzzles, hehe.

  5. I love the design... definitely have to try this soon! The muted colours work with the weather, though I don't think it's very mood-lifting... I'm not a fan of all this rain tbh, I think I'm going to have to have bright nails tomorrow to get out of bed!

  12. Thanks Alison :) I was going to go over it with a top coat, but I felt like I needed to at least wear the matte for a day. Then it chipped on me so I had to change my mani haha.
