What's in Style Now: 90's Checkered Nails

Posted by Tiana Regan

Nails are always a popular beauty item, and there are so many fun ways to do them! If you're looking for a new nail art idea, why not try checkered nails? 

This look is simple to create and can be dressed up or down depending on your style. 

Checkered nails are always in style, plus if you were a child of the 90s this nail design is just nostalgic! In May, Glamour magazine said this style was the "coolest summer nail designs this year". 

Now, it's time for you to go completely mental over these nails, doing it yourself while veggin' at home.

What if you could create this look without drawing a bunch of squares on your nails? Who's got the patience. The best part about this look is that one stamp gets you there in a snap. 

We have a simple way to create this design with nail plate, M156. Spice it up with a colorful neon base (remember all those times you painted your nails in a highlighter color?!)

So, are you full on lovin' it? Don't just tell us, show us your version of Checkered nails! 

We also got you a simple stamping technique so you can achieve this trendy look in seconds. So easy that anyone can do it. 

You can also watch the simple nail stamping video tutorial on our YouTube Channel.

Make sure you hashtag us and show us how you created this look for yourself using #maniology.

Happy stamping!
