Day 16: TRIBAL (30 Day Challenge)

Sunday, 16 September 2012

I hadn't ever tried tribal nails before, so this was quite fun to do (albeit very time consuming - d'oh!)

I started off by picking three sets of three colours, a combination of an earthy tone for base, and two brighter tones:

Mint green, bright red, bright blue
Grey, yellow, green
Beige, pink orange

I painted a base colour on my nails using the earthy tone, and then when that was dry I did a few stripes using the bright colours.  After this, I used the bright colours to do some dots.

Then, on all of the nails, I used black and white to do some dots, arrows and stripes.I did this all freehand, so my left hand (I'm a leftie!) looks a bit messier as it was hard to try and get the patterns on neatly, overally though, I think this works!
