Peppermint Tribal

Happy December, everyone! Like most people I love this time of year. Usually I don't get too festive up until the day of the holiday but Christmas is the one exception! I have a few holiday nail art ideas to show you so hopefully I have time to get through them all :)

First up is a classic tribal print. I love kicking off the season with less-traditional versions of Christmas colours. It's a nice way to ease into it, plus mint is always a fan favourite. I think this is the first non-accent nail manicure I've done in a very long time (accent nails = no time/laziness). I incorporated my usual tribal designs as well as more Christmas-themed patterns. 

I started with American Apparel T-Shirt on all of my nails. I used the brushes from American Apparel Office and American Apparel Poppy to make thick vertical stripes of colour. Then I used a white striping polish and dotting tools for the details.
