Purple Argyle Nails

Hey everyone!

So I decided to do these Argyle nails since this week's trend is sweaters. Also, I knew they would work for Day 26 of the 31 day nail art challenge I'm doing on Instagram. (Btw, if you want to see more of my challenge pics and nail art, it's all right here!)

I freehanded these with a small brush, and I know they're not amazing, but I wasn't aiming for perfection. ;) The purple is an unnamed polish from Physician's Formula, the black and white are both acrylic paints, and the grey is a franken that I mixed using black, white, and a little purple. (I didn't have any greys that were quite what I wanted so I made my own!) The studs I got online, and I used Glisten and Glow HK Girl Top Coat to top everything off.

 Thanks for looking!! Have a great day! =)


  1. Hey! I really like what you did on your nails! Can you tell me if you used layers to create this or did you use a smaller brush to get the nail polish so well next to each other? :D

  2. Thanks so much!! =) I actually tried to do light outlines with the black and then filled them in with black and grey (and touched up with the purple where necessary). The brush I used was a detail brush that I trimmed down, and Robin Moses on YouTube has a great tutorial for how to trim brushes if you're interested!

  3. Thank you! I will try that out!! :D
    I just watched the Robin Moses video you were talking about, it's interesting indeed! Thanks! :)
