DIY fancy quilted nails

Finally new nail art for 2016! How's about some quilted nails cause I'm so fancy and all.

For this week's edition of the weekly nail art challenge (WNAC) I co-host on Instagram along with Kristin of Lacquerstyle and Tracey of MissBellaTracey, the theme is Glitz n Glam and the prompt is Quilted! Somewhat of a departure from my usual order of things (wtf is quilting anyways), but in the end a gradient worked itself into the mani somehow, as with some shimmer and holo glitter soooooo... that's the Glitz part?

I watched Tartofraises' amazing French witchcraft magic 3D quilted nails video for immediate inspiration and pretty much just drooled and then cried cause I had no idea what was happening even though I speak French. I looked for North American ways of achieving this look and the next best thing was found in a video by Kelli Marissa - dental floss, who knew those actually had a use!
