As you may know it’s Burns Night tonight and lot’s of people will be out having a haggis and whiskey or too to pay their respects to the late poet.
If you don’t know what you’re doing yet take a look at out Burns Night in London suggestions and then see below for our how to guide to create tartan nails for the occasion.
If you don’t want to create your own you can get some great tartan nails done for you at Wah nails Topshop or Dalston (image above).
What you will need:
- Taupe Nail Polish
- White Acrylic Paint
- Black Acrylic Paint
- Red Acrylic Paint
- Top Coat
- Thin Paint Brush
Apply the taupe coloured nail varnish to your nail.
Using the white acrylic paint and a thin paint brush, apply a large white stripe across your nail. Place this more towards the tip of the nail than the root of the nail.
Using the black acrylic paint and a thin paint brush, apply a black line at either side of the white stripe and also in the middle of the white stripe.
Again using the black acrylic paint and a thin paint brush, apply two black lines vertically down your nail.
Using the red acrylic paint and a thin paint brush, apply one red line horizontally across your nail (towards the root) and one red line vertically down your nail.
