It started as a fancy dress of choice and is now quiet a rage. Yes, we are talking about the uber famous tribal trend. From dresses to skirts to denims, they are everywhere. So its about time we have them on our nails, right ladies? Here’s a quick n easy tribal nail art tutorial by our guest writer from One Nail To Rule Them All – Four easy steps and you are good to go. Here are a few supplies that you need :
White base coat
A variety of colours, the more translucent the better
Black acrylic paint or nail varnish
Fast-drying top coat
Make up sponge
Step 1: Paint your nails white
Step 2: Use a makeup sponge to add a gradient effect, I chose to do this using neon colours, but you could also use pastels for a more spring-like look. The colours I used were Models Own – Toxic Apple, Orange Sorbet and Pink Sorbet. I also added a layer of fast-drying top coat to help the colours blend more.
Step 3: Using a small paintbrush (as below) use black acrylic paint to draw on detail, such as zigzag lines
Step 4: Finish the pattern, differing the design on each nail
Step 5: Add a topcoat to seal in and protect your design and you’re done!
