Burberry nail art tutorial

What about another tutorial? A girl on facebook saw my pink and beige gradient Burberry nail art I did in the 31DC and she wanted a tutorial so I decided to make a tutorial of the original pattern. Optional to ad a gradient or change colors of course.

Just follow the pictures to create this.
You'll need a beige/nude color for the base and fine liners in black, white and red. A fine liner brush and regular polishes works too but I prefer fine liner polishes.


  1. Paint the base and let it dry.
  2. Paint a thick white vertical line to the side of your nail. (As you see the right side of the white line is in the middle of the nail.)
  3. Paint another thick line horizontally on the nail. (A nice placement is somewhat where you'd paint a french tip's upper line.
  4. Fill in the white lines with black as thin as you can. (Start with the outer ones)
  5. Fill in the white lines with black as thin as you can. (Start with the outer ones)
  6. Then paint the inner black lines. (Painting them last will make it easier to place the in the middle)
  7. Paint the red line horizontally in the "middle" of the beige area crossing the white and black.
  8. Paint the vertical line also in the "middle" in the beige area. (The two lines makes a perfect cross.) Make cleanup if necessary and apply top coat and you're good to go!
Ad a diagonal gradient like this one if you want to make it look different from the original.
 Got any questions about this nail art? Or other requests? Just comment below. :)

    1. Tack, kul att höra! Var lite så jag tänkte, att man skulle se tankemönstret, för att egentligen så är det ju "bara streck" men hur man lägger strecken och i vilket ordning kan underlätta och "försköna" kan jag tycka! :D

    1. Thank you! Naw, there is some practice for making steady lines of course. But I must say that the tools really makes a different too. With a regular brush I had a hard time making the lines thin and sharp whilst working with a fine liner polish it works fine. it should be the same.. And also some days I either can't make straight lines, some days are more steady than others ;)
