Hey Hey Hey!

Today is Tribal Print day in our ongoing 31 Day Challenge, and I’ll admit that today’s theme intimidated the hell out of me. :? My free-hand nail art skills are still a work in progress and I didn’t have any stamping plates that would I could get away with calling ‘tribal art’. So I started scouring the internets for images and possible tutorials on how to create tribal nails. And that’s when I found it, the Aztec design by WAH Nails. I know there are several variations of the aztec nails, but I figured that I could recreate them fairly easily. I took a deep breath, grabbed my polish and went to work. :-)

Don’t forget to take a peek at Cris and Sam’s blogs today to see their tribal manis for the day! ^_^

Day 16: Tribal Print
I’m still waiting to get my set of brushes from that I ordered from the Born Pretty store (3-4 weeks!! :-() so I had to use a small acrylic brush and I couldn’t get my lines as thin and straight as I wanted them to be. :?

Overall I’m pleased with my first attempt at aztec nails! Yeah it’s a little wobbly but dammit it was my first try ever! :-P I used Maybelline Banana Bamba as my base color (2 coats). I then used Wet n Wild Black Creme & French White Creme for the accents, as well as A England’s Galahad (seriously, love this color!). :-)
