Some checkered nails

I recently got my new nail art brushes and one of them is a nice striping brush. To see if I can work with something like that, I did my first checkered nails. I admit that I never used a striping brush before. I also admit that I should have. It was so easy to do those nails with this new brush.

I got the idea from some japanese nail art magazine, but I don't recall which one and which issue.

I used Catrice Dirty Berry as the base color. I *love* this one. It was my very first Catrice polish and it was a great choice. If you have the chance, you should get it! I then painted a white halfmoon using white stamping polish and another one on top of the white using silver nail polish. Yes... I fail at painting halfmoons. I couldn't find my guides though. Lastly I used black and silver polish to do the stripes and added some silver glitter to the silver halfmoons. Topped with top coat and done. The next day, I also added some rhinestones.

I was actually quite proud when I was finally done. It took a while to do all these layers. Still, in the end, I think that the silver halfmoons turned out way too big. I should have made them smaller, so the white could show better. This way, I feel like there's too much silver.
What do you think?
