Black and White Herringbone Nail Art

I hope you are having a wonderful day. Today I wanted to show you a really cool nail art I made recently. It's a geometric black and white pattern. I've been loving all things geometric and b&w lately so a nail art was going to happen eventually. I chose to do a herringbone pattern. It was a bit tricky and long but I managed to do it. Also, that's why I only did an accent nail. Doing several of these would take several days I think! And I would have been incapable of recreating that design with my left hand so the accent nail is a really good trick.
My base and top coats and the white polish are from HEMA and the blue polish is from New Look (Kelly Brook).
To do the herringbone pattern, I started off by drawing 2 vertical lines and then I did smaller parallel lines in between. After that, I filled in some places with white (several coats were needed) and filled the rest with black acrylic paint. This picture really helps to understand the steps. I hope you like this nail art and tell me if you recreate it!
Love, Elsa
