Return Of The Tribal

So sorry for the lack of activity lately. We're nearing that final month of the school year so it's crunch time for me! I'm -still- in a bit of a rut so I thought I would go back to what I know best: lines! I did a quick tribal-esque look and by quick, I mean quick. So quick, in fact, that smudged a lot of the white parts when I topcoated too early ): I almost didn't post this because it bothered me so much but I figured that I owe you guys something :P

I don't think I've done a look exactly like this one but I do have some very similar ones. If you like this style, check out the 'tribal' tag in the labels section to the left for more (: I also have a video tutorial featuring two tribal nail designs, one of which is similar to this one. Check it out here (:


I started with China Glaze Kinetic Candy. I then painted a thick stripe down the middle of the nail with China Glaze Love's A Beach. Then I used a white striping polish for the design.

Oh! I also wanted to show you some photos, just for fun! Last week I did a 'bungee jumping' type thing with some friends.

 

On the left is us, that dot at the top of the right tower thing. On the right is us flying through the air. I'm the one grinning like an idiot haha :P

So thanks for stopping by! The next time I'll talk to you will be in June! :D

  6. I have never done this superman thing but when I was about 17 I bungee jumped off a tower at an adventure park thing. I'd be grinning like an idiot too! Oh ps- these nails are amazing.

  8. Brilliant colour combo--they look like bright, beautiful feathers! So jealous of your striping skills. My hands go all manic and jumpy when I try doing this myself. Couldn't possibly be the constant flow of caffeine I survive on! ;p

  9. Thank you! Haha striping is my comfort zone but it does get pretty difficult after a few fingers :P I don't even drink a lot of coffee and I have shaky hands so you're probably better off than me! :P

  12. Thanks, Traci! xo Haha I was ready to pee my pants and cry but the drop happened so quickly that I don't even remember it. It was actually really enjoyable because it was a very smooth soaring motion :D

  13. Love the color combination on your mani! Your bungee jumping looks like so much fun, but I don't think I could ever get up the courage to try it! ;)
