AN Monday - tribal print nail design

Hi everyone! Believe it or not this is my very first time trying a tribal print. I've just never been drawn to do one before. I enjoyed it though and had fun with the different designs and colours. I used Cate Ruby Blue Bubblegum for the blue, the deeper coral is butter London Trout Pout and the lighter coral butter London Kerfuffle. I used Zoya Raven for black. Now I used a handy hint I picked up from labmuffin, before applying my top coat I applied a layer of my peel off base coat that dries clear, you can also use PVA. I waited until it was entirely dry and then added top coat and had no smearing at all! I usually find my home girl top coats don't smear small designs or stamping but I was worried with that much black that it would smear so I was very happy to get away with no smearing. Now most of the design is free handed except for the step looking parts for which I used chevron decals sideways to paint the shape. If you haven't tried a tribal design yet give it a go, you can't really go wrong and there are so many different designs you can use.

Have a lovely week, Tx.
