Simple Handpainted Tribal? Design

As I promised in my last post, I have finally stepped away from my stamping supplies and hand painted my nails!

I decided I wanted to paint a pattern on my nails with grey, black and a fluoro polish and found this simple pattern from

 I started off by painting the pattern down the centre of my nails. Unfortunately I couldn't fit many repeats on!

 I really liked my nails like that and wore them for a day before adding more of the patten to the sides :)

 I had a lot of trouble photographing the fluoro polish- if anyone has any tips I would be forever grateful!!!!

The Polishes I used were:
Fluoro yellow: China Glaze Sun-Kissed  (This is slightly shimmery and very opaque)
Grey metallic: China Glaze Awaken
White base: OPI alpine snow
and the black is acrylic paint :)

 So what do you think of this simple pattern?
I like it- It was easy to do and looks sort of tribal :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog


  1. These are awesome! I love the pattern and the colors you chose are great! (:

    1. Thanks so much!!! It was much better in real life when the neon was actually neon! hehe

  2. I love both versions of this! The pattern is so simple but stands out so much with the neon polish! :)

    1. Thanks very much :) I think I like the second one slightly more (which is lucky seeing as I wore it longer !)

  3. These look amazing! I love the pop of neon and the starkly graphic design :) Your lines are perfect!


Thank you for your comments! I read every single one from both new and old posts, and will do my best to respond to any questions you may have in a timely fashion :)
