Hi there lovelies!
I love this idea, it's so cute!!

You will need:
4 nail polish colours of your choice
Nail strips
Scissors
Cuticle nippers
Clean paintbrush
Clear nail polish

NOTE: Use one of your nail polish colors as a base for your nails about an hour before you start.

1. Take a section of the nail strips and cut them in half long ways.

2. Cut those two in half short ways. This will give you four sections of nail strips like in the second photo.

3. Paint those for sections each a different colour using the nail polishes you chose.

4. Now you’ll start laying them down in the traditional herringbone pattern (see image).

5. Lay down the next set just above that. You want to overlap a little like with the gold in the fifth photo.

6. Keep going until you reach the top. Take a clean paintbrush and push the sides down. Go around the whole perimeter of the nail.

7. Use the cuticle nippers to clean up the excess.

8. Add a clear coat on top.

And VOILA! 
hope you enjoyed this tip! xo
