Guest BloggerManicure Monday: Tribal Nails with Katy of Nailed It

Tribal print is traditionally dyed with the most beautiful and rich dyes derived from natural, juicy fruits. While this LuLu*s inspired look may not have the most natural colors in it, it’s certainly keeping with the bright colors I’ve grown to associate tribal prints with!

This manicure was inspired by this bright Billabong Tribal Print Purse! I chose a more coral/hot pink for my mani, but the yellow, teal and indigo stitching was pulled almost directly from the look of the bag.

 

While this tribal nail tutorial may be a bit more advanced and requires more patience, tools, and clean-up, the end result is so striking that everyone needs to give it a try!

BeautyManicure Monday: Tribal Nails with Syl and Sam

Hey ladies, 
This week we’re going to show you how to get the stylish modern “tribal” pattern nails. They look really intricate and detailed but when broken down to some easy steps, you can totally get the look in no time!

Here’s what we’re going for:
What you’ll need:
- white base coat
- white striper
- three contrast colours, I used a teal, orange and yellow.
- a black nail art pen

Start with a few coats of your base colour and don’t worry if the coverage isn’t the greatest, it mostly gets covered anyway.

Next grab your contrast colours and do some random stripes across each nail.

Just keep the colours random and do a coouple of stripes per nail. Wait for these coats to dry completely before continuing!

Then take your nail art pen and draw outlines for each of your horizontal stripes that you drew.

And now the fun part! In between each set of lines, draw any repeated geometric pattern. Some patterns I drew were triangles, zig zags, polka dots and concentric circles. Continue with the rest of your nails and then top coat!

That’s it! Once it’s broken down into a few easy steps, those really intricate nails aren’t actually that difficult to do! They’re a bit time consuming but it’s worth it for the compliments you’ll get!
