NOTD : Tessellated Stripes

Hey there ! So I've got another NOTD again today, and I absolutely love this one ! I asked my best friend Lauren for some suggestions as to what I ought to do and her first suggestion was stripes. I've had a stripey pattern in mind for ages, and so I figured I really ought to try that !

So this is a tessellated design, which basically means it's a super-repetitive pattern, it just sounds really fancy ! I don't actually know whether there's a proper name for this design (like "herringbone" or "houndstooth" for other patterns), so i'm just going to stick with tessellated stripes ! Please comment me the name of the pattern if there is a precise one !

For this design I used Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream and then I drew on the stripes for the pattern with my Models Own Wah Nails nail art pen in white. I did contemplate doing the design with a nail art brush, but then decided that I could be better with the precision using the pen, on both my left and right hand ! I quite like the fact it's so subtle from a distance, and the stripes actually blend into the blue base colour.

And yeah, so that's it once again for today, I do hope you like this design as much as I do ! I'll still probably end up taking them off tomorrow anyway because I'll get bored and want a new design ! But oh well, it can't be forever can it !

Oh I almost forgot to say, Fee from Makeup Savvy chose me as a finalist in her 15 day nail challenge ! You can vote here for your favourite design out of the three that she chose ! Happy voting !
