Hello, all! I am so excited to be doing this guest post for Lucy - she's one of my favorites and so talented! I feel very honored and I hope to share something that is up to her standards with you all today. Thanks, Lucy!! 
I spent a long while thinking about what to do for this post and I ended up with something that allowed me to combine my love of detail work and color. I'm not sure if there is a name for this type of pattern, but the closest description I've found for it is a "knit sweater" pattern. I've also seen it incorporated into tribal patterns and prints. Regardless of it's name, I'm very pleased with how it turned out! 
To create this look, I used a long striping brush and black acrylic paint to layout the black line work - I went crazy trying to get them as close to perfect as I could manage! I painted 5 vertical stripes evenly spaced across my nail and used the same striping brush to add in the "/" & "\" details between each line. Using a small detailing brush and Julep's Sylvia (purple), Francis (green), Veronica (salmon), and Nellie (magenta), I created a stair-step effect with the color to add a bit more interest to the design. If the black line work wasn't looking the way I wanted after this step, I went back over it with my striping brush and black acrylic paint until I was satisfied. While this looks complicated, it's not overly difficult to achieve if you have some patience and a steady hand! 
Thanks for reading and happy polishing! xo, Lindsey from Wondrously Polished
