Even though I’ve never been one to go with the flow, I seem to be following trends lately. Nail inspired by tribal prints are absolutely gorgeous and I couldn’t help but try to do this for myself. Would you care to join me? Here are some pretty simple steps. Feel free to change up the colours. I have been in love with these two metallic shades.
Step one: Apply base coat if using a dark shade. I applied China Glaze’s Strong adhesion base coat followed by two coats of Orly’s Stone Cold.
Step two: Using another color of your choice, apply a strip of that colour down the middle. I choose L.A. Girl metallic nail colour in Antique gold. Quick tip, make sure your base colour and this second strip colour are contrasting ones for that pop. At this point I wanted to stop since my two colours were stunning on their own! But let’s move forward.
Step three: Draw black lines to the edges of where the two colours meet each other. Try the Sally Hansen nail art pen in black if you have shaky hands like me.
Step four: Finish you design by drawing zig zag lines within the two black lines and add dots within each triangle. You’re done!
Wasn’t that super easy? I can see myself trying out more variations with different colours and lines. Following trends can be fun! Give it a try!
Happy Tribal Nails!
