31DC2012: Day 16 - Tribal Print

For tribal print, I was a bit worried. I've never been a huge fan of the tribal print trend. But hey I had to give it a go for the challenge! :)

I was inspired by this video on youtube! I only watched about 30 seconds into the video and used the pictures for my inspiration. I thought this looked like the easiest version of tribal print and looked really cool too! 

I used the classic China Glaze - For Audrey for the base. I then freehanded two thick horizontal stripes across my nail with Ulta3 - Lily White and a random polish I bought from Cotton On (in the Body section), very appropriately named 'Taupe'. ;)

This polish from Cotton On Body is actually a pretty good formula for being made by a clothing store! I have a few others from Cotton On and I only had a problem with one of them being a not-so-nice formula! I think I paid $5 for that polish. They do tend to change up which polishes they sell in store pretty often though so I don't know if you'll still be able to find it.
I also used BYS nail art stripers in Black and White for the small details. :) 

This nail art was extremely easy to create! I really like the look! I'd never wear this print on my clothing but for my nails I think it looks pretty awesome.
Come back tomorrow to see my GLITTER mani! :D

I've been loving tribal/aztec patterns for a while and yours looks great! I don't think I have the patience to do a tribal mani haha
All the Cotton On polishes I have tried actually have pretty good forumlas- the only problem that I had with them was the fact that they chip after a day (sometimes less).
