I have a nude polish which I was very excited about when I first bought it but it actually was a huge disappointment once I applied it on my nails since it has barely any colour in it. But somehow this makes this polish perfect for this design.
The first nail design which I will show you is a checked pattern and the second is a dotted one.
I started off with a basecoat and let that dry. After that I applied one coat of essence's nude glam nail polish 01 cotton candy. As you can see it is very sheer with the first coat of polish.

You could create this with a striper brush aswell but I am not very trained in that and as you might have noticed I like stamping so I used Mash image plate Mash-39 and p2 color victim 544 my place or yours to stamp on the checked pattern.

I gave that a moment to dry before I applied another coat of the sheer essence polish over the stamped image. The sheer color alters the stamped one a little and makes it look a little more like a pastel polish.

After the second layer dried completely I used a striper brush and 543 break the rules! by p2 color victim to draw the lines as you can see them. They look kinda shaky. If the striper brush is long enough this probably won't happen. I finished off with a layer of essence's quick dry topcoat to protect the design.

And that is it for this design. ^^
The other design starts with the same basecoat and basecolor.

Then I used a dotting tool and randomly dotted with 544 my place or yours by p2 color victim dots in different sizes on my nail.

After those dots dried I polished one coat of the nude glam polish over the dots.

Again using the dotting tools I added dots in the same color as before and in pink 543 break the rules! by p2 color vicitm on the free spaces between the first dots. I finished with a quick drying to seal in the design.

And here are my first two attempts. They do not look very good... :D The lines never show up straight and the dots didn't turn out so well either...
