Jelly Plaid Color Changing Nails!

The other day, I saw online a nail set from Face Shop.  It's a set with baby blue, pink and yellow in it.  With it, you can create plaid patterns with lots of colors as the 3 colors create a new color when overlapped.

Here is a pic of the product I saw online:

I really wanted the set.  However, I didn't because:
1. I have loads of nail polishes and I am sure I have similar colors already.
2. There's no Face Shop here where I live!!!!!

Anyways, I went to search for similar colors in my stash and found the following that actually worked:
PA - Nail Color A38
H&M - Neon Yellow
Barielle - 5123 Princess

You can use others similar colors if you want.  The key is that the colors need to be sheer.  So, I think you can just use jelly colors if you have some.

Blue + Yellow = Green
Yellow + Pink = Orange
Pink + Blue = Purple

This design is really simple.  It does take patience though.  Need to paint carefully and wait patiently for the layers to dry.

I hope you enjoy the tutorial.
