Day 16: Tribal Print

I've been dreading this day for a while. I love tribal nail art but had no idea how to come up with a decent design myself, however, once I forced myself to sit down and actually do it, the ideas just kept coming and I am completely in love with this design!

The black detail is all created with acrylic paint which has allowed me to get the crisp lines that I know I couldn't have achieved by using black nail polish. At the moment I only have black and white acrylic paint but I think I'm going to have to look out for some more cheap pots in a better range of colours.

You should go and see what Rie and Cristina came up with today too!

  23. I love your tribal designs. I do struggle with getting lines and effects as good on my right hand (I'm right handed if you hadn't guessed) as on my left.
    How do you manage that?
    I hadn't thought of acrylic paints but I'm off out tomorrow to look for some. :)
