This design is a reincarnation of a similar triple-lined cross hatch pattern I did in July, but this time without added the extra blocks of colour around the diamond/square intersections.
VIDEO TUTORIAL AT THE END OF THE POST!
I was going for a more classic look as opposed to my usual coloured/holo/crazy order of things. This mani pretty much goes with everything actually. Chic and edgy, yeah! Okay I know nothing about fashion but if I did I might say that this mani could have totally been inspired by the latest runway trends (it wasn't, but if it happens to appear to have been, then I guess I'm a secret genius lacking insight).
I used my fav one coater black creme of all time, Cult Nails' 'Nevermore', and a new white creme to me, 'Tempest', also by Cult Nails for this mani. This white is actually ALMOST a one-coater. See so for yourself in the video below. If you apply a thick enough layer you can manage one coat. At the very least, you could theoretically use this white OVER striping tape/nail vinyls to cover dark or coloured polish as when applying polish over tape you generally apply a thick coat anyways and then proceed to peel off the tape, and so on and so forth.
Both hands = double the simple design but double the complex time-dependent execution :p

I won't go over the how-to steps as it should be rather straight forward, but please refer to my previous cross hatch design post for the basic steps.
You can buy striping tape from almost any nail art supply store online, including Born Pretty Store, Née Jolie (pour les francophones), or eBay.
Stay tuned cause I may have not left this mani as is... teehee.
Polishes used (evidently):
- Cult Nails 'Tempest' (white creme)
- Cult Nails 'Nevermore' (black creme)
