I Really Like Tribal Nails

Happy Friday Everyone! 


I hope you have all had an excellent week and and if not well it's almost the weekend! For today's mani I started out knowing I really wanted to do tribal nails because I love them and haven't done any in a while. I spent like 2 hours on the internet looking at various tribal like patterns, both nails and just random images searching for my inspiration. When I finally sat down to do my nails I had looked at so much that I don't really know where the inspiration came from. So if I used something of yours credit goes to you! This is what came out of 2 hours of looking at various tribal patterns!

I started with 2 coats of OPI's Fly from the Nicki Minaj Collection. Then I took my black striper and created an outline of the different patterns I wanted. Then I used Essence's Wanna Be Your Sunshine to fill in where I wanted the yellow. I took a white striper and filled in the white areas and then used Sally Hansen's Celeb City and a striper brush to fill in all the silver areas. WBYS needed about 3 coats to be fully opaque over Fly. So I waited for this to dry. At this point it was a hot mess. Colours everywhere no definition. I was thinking I had an epic fail. But once it was dry I went back over the outlines I had made in back to really give some areas definition. Then I felt some of the areas needed a little filling in with more black stripes. And finally I grabbed a small dotting tool and added them in black and white in various places!

I think this is the most intricate mani that I have ever done! I love it and am still wearing it now :)

    1. Thanks! Yup all with polish and nail art brushes. I find you just need to be patient and really wait for layers to dry. I think I did about 4 coats of the yellow before it was opaque. Otherwise putting too much down at once it will spread out and run :)
