Nail art Orange Argyle
One of the old-timer nail art designs, this print reminds us of a classic argyle pattern. This pattern (sometimes it is spelled Argyll) consists of lozenges or diamonds. The word Argyle occasionally refers to a separate diamond in the pattern, but more often the overall design is in matter. You have definitely seen this pattern on a classic orange argyle sweater.
Most argyle set ups consist of a few layers, where motifs overlap each other, creating an impression of 3d, motion, and surface. Most often these designs are overlay of diagonal lines, that intercross, and solid diamonds.
For this classic design you’ll need a white nail polish, an orange acrylic paint, and a black acrylic paint. Stock a fine stripes brush and a topping coat.
How to make:
1. Cover the nails with the white polish. Leave it to dry.
2. With orange paint create a pattern of X shape. It should spread on the entire nail, from one corner to another. Fill in the triangles with orange acrylic, and leave the other 2 triangles empty and white.
3. Using the black paint make a cross-wise pattern in classical argyle style.
4. Finish with the top coat if you wish.
Your design is finished! You can decorate it with some chips if you like.
