Last weekend I was out looking for some maxi dresses for the warmer weather. I ended up buying one that has a lot of greens and blues on it in a tribal print. That dress inspired me to do a tribal print manicure. I stuck with similar colors and used one of my Bundle Monster plates for the pattern.
WHAT I'M WEARING:
1 coat of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails
2 coats of Essie Turquoise & Caicos
1 coat of Seche Vite
Sally Hansen Color Quick pen in Turquoise Chrome & image plate BM219 at the tips
Sally Hansen Color Quick pen in Green Chrome & image plate BM219 at the base
1 final coat of Seche Vite
The design is actually intended for a French tip. I decided to continue to the design all the way down the nail, though, just in a different color. Maybe it is just me, but if I didn't know that a French tip plate was used, I'd never guess that it was 2 combined. With my nails being very short right now, the tip plates go nearly half way down my nail bed, which makes them even more perfect when I want to continue the pattern all the way down.
What are your thoughts/feelings on tribal designs (be it in clothes, shoes, nails, etc.)? I wasn't sure how I felt about it at first, but at the very moment I'm really enjoying it.
