Go Wild, Go Tribal Nails

Lo’ there bloggies! Tribal prints are everywhere these days and we thought we would make an attempt to do tribal print nails. WAHOO! Here is our take on this fierce pattern…RAWR!


Sooo…you’re probably wondering what we used for this funky fabulicious print! We used 1. Urban Outfitters Polish in Smush 2. Sally Hansen Blue Nail Art Pen in Navy 3. Sally Hansen Top Coat:


If you don’t have nail pens and aren’t planning on investing in them (they may not be worth it to you if you’re not a nail art junkie :)), then gel pens work fine as an alternative. Just make sure to let them dry REALLY well before applying top coat as otherwise they will smudge. Even if you have waited for them to dry, the best idea is to glop on top coat, then spread it over your nail since that way it’s less likely to smudge.

Wondering how we did it? Just three simple patterns: 1. lines 2. zig-zags 3. dots…really it’s that easy! Just keep your hand steady, breath, and GET CREATIVE! You can layer zig-zags and dots, stripes and zig-zags, etc. Most of the fun is creating your own new combinations!

With love (and zig-zags),
