Quilted Nail Art Tutorial

Create Chic Quilted Nails With This 1 Easy Hack

Textured manicures have risen in popularity thanks to sweater nail art. Add quilted nails to your list of new (and surprisingly easy) DIY designs you need to try.

It's a lot simpler than it looks. All you need is the lacquer of your choice, gold glitter or rhinestones, and a floss pick. Polish your nails as usual, but don't let your nails dry completely — it's important that the paint is somewhat tacky so you can achieve a precise design. Before the polish hardens, use your floss pick to stamp diagonal lines to create that quilted diamond design. Add some glitz to your nails using gold appliqués, or if you consider yourself more of a minimalist, just finish with a matte topcoat.

The chic design is not only a simple upgrade to any basic color but is an effortless way for you to practice your DIY skills with tools you have at home. Plus, it might even match one of your favorite designer handbags! Watch along to see for yourself — we can almost guarantee you'll be quilting every manicure from here on out.
