First Ever Tribal Print

Since I started this blog, I've been terrified of tribal prints. For one, they seemed like a ton of work. Plus, how the heck was I supposed to be able to do my right hand (since I'm right-handed)?

So I waited ... and waited and waited and waited. And finally, almost a year later, I decided it was time.

Without further ado, here is my first attempt at tribal print:
There were a few missteps and smudges, but overall, I was thrilled with how these turned out. Starting with a base of OPI Fly from the Nicki Minaj collection, I used black and white It's So Easy Nails Stripe Rite striper brushes, with OPI Did It On 'Em as accents on my thumb, middle and ring finger. The pink accents are OPI Pedal Faster Suzi and OPI Elephantastic Pink.

The next attempt will hopefully be a little cleaner -- by then I should have perfected the art of these striper brushes!
