Manicure: Herringbone

Hey Luuuxers,
I think this is a really fun manicure and is not that hard to do.
Before you start, use one of your polish colors as a base for your nails about an hour before (or the night before) so they have plenty of time to dry before you apply the nail strips

1.Take a section of nail strips from the Sally Hansen Hard as Nails French Manicure kit and cut them in half long ways. I like using these because theyre pre-cut and fit together perfectly. It would be hard to get this precise with DIY nail stickers, but you can try.
2.Next, cut those two in half short ways (following the lines of the nail strips). This will give you four sections of nail strips as seen in photo 2.
3.Paint those four sections of nail strips any color you want! We used RGB - Minty, Popbeauty - Lavender Love, Nicole - Gold Texture and Essie - Fifth Avenue for a pretty summer palette.
4.Now youll start laying them down in the traditional herringbone pattern (see image). The best thing about using these particular nail strips is that you can pick them up and lay them back down if you mess up and it wont pull up the base polish. (Btw, I wish Sally Hansen would sell just the strips by themselves!)
6.Keep going til you reach the top. Take a clean paintbrush and push the sides down. Go around the entire perimeter of the nail.
7.Use your cuticle nippers to clean up the excess.
8.Add a quick drying clear coat

So what do you think about it?
I love this manicure.
