Introduction: Quilted Nails

Picture of Quilted Nails

Quilted blankets and handbags are a bit hard to make, but quilted nails are really easy! You don't need any stripping tape or anything to make these gorgeous nail designs. :)

Step 1: Materials

• Nail polish colour of your choice
• Top coat
• Plastic Tooth Floss (for quilting!)
• Nail Glitter (or just sparkly nail polish)

Step 2:

Paint a bottom coat on your nails first (this is a must-do)!

Step 3:

Paint two thick coats of your favorite nail polish and let them dry for five to seven minutes. Make sure the polish doesn’t dry completely for the lines to be created.

Step 4:

Take a flosser and roll it diagonally across your nail to create three indents into your nail polish.
Then roll the flosser across your finger diagonally the other way. This will make the quilted squares all over your nail.

Step 5:

Dip your brush in your sparkly nail polish and paint dots in the intersections of the quilted squares.

Dip your brush in some clear polish and paint dots in the intersections of the quilted squares. This will make the glitter stick on.

Step 6:

Skip this step if you didn't use glitter dots.

Dip your brush in water and use it to pick up the glitter dots. Place the dots carefully where you painted your clear polish dots.

Step 7:

Add a top coat to your finished nail design. Yay! :)

Just so you know, I found that someone had taken one of my instructables and started selling it on listia without my permission. When I started looking into it, I found yours for sale on his page as well. He said, "A friend of mine had her nails like this and I LOVED IT!! I had to get her to teach me and it was really easy, and fun!"
