Red Checker Nail Art!

Here's a mani that I did for fun when plain red got boring after a couple of days. I started with China Glaze Red Stallion, taped it off in squares (slightly lopsided squares, but it really doesn't matter) and used one thick coat of Zoya Trixie for the silver.

I really like how this turned out. It kind of reminds me of a medieval knight's shield with the red and sliver checkers. It would be really fun to wear to a Medieval Times restaurant or a similar event. 

Edit: August 5, 2012. I was looking through old posts on Lucy's Stash and found the manicure that must have subconsciously inspired this mani! I didn't even realize it!! I just wanted to give credit where it's due so go check out the mani on Lucy's Stash. She even has a tutorial!
