31 Day Challenge Day 16: Tribal

Tribal Nails! I have been so excited about today's prompt since the start of the challenge. Tribal nails are one of the first forms of nail art that I attempted and have been one of my favourites ever since. There are just endless tribalesque patterns that you can try! I am beyond stoked with the nails that I came up with and they are actually my favourite nail art that I've done in awhile! :D

Please excuse that awful little cut on my ring finger. Somehow last night that happened, and I realized while editing these pictures, that it looks so much worse in close up shots than real life!

I used Milani White On The Spot as my base and then used a medium length striping brush to freehand the tribal pattern. I used a ton of polishes, so I'll list them all below! I just went with lines, triangles and dots and kind of went with the flow. I didn't have a plan beyond that sitting down, which was kind of fun to see just what happened!

I had my friend and my aunt ask me if they were stickers last night, and when I said nope I freehanded them, they both looked at me like I was insane! But I enjoyed doing it. :) Maybe I'm a little crazy, but they are so much fun!
