▓▒▓▒ Patchwork Quilt ▓▒▓▒

Hello Fellow Nail-bees!!
Ok First up! My blog has a 100 followers!!!
(Goes off to dance!)
Do keep a watch for my Mighty giveaway!
 Coming back to my post for today: Winter is setting in (except for Mumbai) and it reminds of a patchwork quilt I used to have as a child that I would snuggle into.
Today I am showing you a mani which I fell in love with instantly when I saw it on a blog. Also I have been doing alot of lot of stamping lately so I decided I should try some free hand and this weave pattern came to my mind first. Its quite easy as it only involves drawing lines.
I did this using a 2-way nail art pen in pink and white colour. One side is a small pen like point and other side is a long striping brush. Initially I tried using the pen side, but the colours wouldnt flow smoothly, So I used the other side and it applied perfectly in a single stroke.

It may look complicated, but is not so much.  Start with diagonal stripes half way down the nail in alternate colours with stripes as close to each other as possible. Only one needs a little patience when filling in the overlaps with the right colour to make a proper weave design.
