Makeup Savvy 15 Day Nail Challenge - Day 2 - Pattern

Day 2 of the Makeup Savvy 15 Day Nail Challenge is Pattern.
When I think of pattern I always think of tribal prints. We studied them in Art when I was in senior school, I honestly don't remember much about it other than I loved the homework we got assigned which was to draw our house using the different patterns to represent texture. It's was so therapeutic.
I've been avoiding trying Tribal Nails for ages as I was quite frankly intimidated by the thought of that much detail on such a tiny surface and making it look good!
So for my first attempt I tried to keep it simple.





I used two coats of Barry M Shocking Pink as my base colour then added the pattern using Barry M Black, Gold Foil and a nameless White that came from a french manicure set I was given.

It's wonky and imperfect but I like it!
Tomorrows theme is Chic and I have no idea what to do!

You don't have to have a blog to enter and you don't even have to join in for everyday, Fee from Makeup Savvy has explained what to do if you don't have a blog HERE and has also revealed the prizes you could win!

    1. Thank you Janine! It took me roughly an hour from start to end for this one, most of that time was spent waiting for polish to dry before I could move on to the next part! X

    1. Thank you! No secrets here though, I take my photos sat on my bed in front of my window with my digital camera on the macro setting, I don't even remember how I turned the macro setting on! :)
