Black & Beige Tribal Nails feat. Essie - Sand Tropez

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
This one was inspired by a shirt from H&M that I rediscovered last week in my closet and the technique of painting with tiny strokes as seen in my recent Ikat Nails. This is the first design in weeks that I'm really happy with and I feel like my inspiration is (hopefully) finally coming back. I used two coats of Essie - Sand Tropez as my base color and then painted the tribal pattern with black acrylic paint, like I said with a nail art brush and very short strokes. On top is one coat of Essie - Good To Go. I can really recommend this technique because it's not difficult to achieve a great result. Even with a bit shaky hands the pattern will look just fine. Also this could be a good design to practice nail art with your weak hand!





Enjoy your Sunday evening my dear readers! :)

  5. Ahh I love this! I haven't properly tried out ikat nails before - it never really "grabbed" me, but this does! Tribal nails are the best!
