31 Day Challenge: Day 16 (Tribal Print)
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.
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! 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!).
Your daily macro. ♥ I really want to try this look again when I get my fancy brushes. ^_^
Thanks for checking out today’s manicure challenge! Tomorrow is Glitter nails!
