Checkered nails

Hello my beauties! I have a new nail art today for you but I'm gonna keep it short and sweet because I don't have much time. These days were so busy! I will have a little more free time starting tomorrow and I still have some exciting stuff to show you this week. So here are my checkered nails! 

I've used my previous manicure of Golden Rose 202 as a base color. When I created this manicure, I had this particular post on ALU in mind. The colors aren't identical, but the idea pretty much is. I've used my trusty China Glaze First Mate for the blue squares. 

If you want to create this you can use this tutorial on Chloe's Nails. I didn't use this exact technique, I just cut squares of tape and stuck them diagonally on the nail, leaving just two empty squares that I've painted with the blue. Of course Erika's method is neater, but I'm not very patient. Mine didn't come out that perfect (and the pictures came out even worse). I still think they are ok considering it was pretty late in the evening when I did them. So that's it. Please tell me what you think in the comments section and I will talk to you all soon!
