tribal nails

For a while now i've adored the tribal nail look

So I thought i'd have a go myself.  I must warn you it takes bloody ages

Step 1

Paint your nails any colour you want

nail colours are boots 17, barry m and H&m
Step 2 Add stripes and dots

Carefully paint contrasting stripes and use liquid eyeliner to draw black dots (don't worry a top coat will ensure the eyeliner stays put)

Step 3 Add zig zags

In the block stripes, break them up by adding zig zags

and tada...

The final result (photo curtesy of my boyfriend, couldn't quite take a photo of both hands...obviously)

If I can do it with my shaky hands then anyone can do it :D

Have fun!
