Nail Art: Tribal Art with Printable Decals

Nail Art: Tribal Art with Printable Decals

Happy October, lovelies! I know, I can’t believe that it’s already October… Three months until 2013 sounds as crazy as Karl Lagerfeld begging you to marry him (which was what happened in my dream this morning. No, I do not fancy him).

Anyways, I used printable waterslide decal I introduced you last week for today’s nail art. Download it from here (and read the tutorial on how to use the decal here) if you fancy getting all tribal :)

I used:

  • waterslide decal
  • L’Oreal / 613
  • nails inc. / Victorial & Albert
  • Barry M / Tangerine
  • pop nail glam / pinkest
  • Ducato / CH500

 

How to get the look:

<thumb>

  • Apply base coat.
  • Place a diamond-shaped masking tape, then apply two coats of nails inc..
  • Take off the masking tape, and place decals.
  • Apply top coat.

<index finger>

  • Apply base coat.
  • Apply two coats of L’Oreal.
  • Place decals.
  • Apply top coat.

<middle finger>

  • Apply base coat.
  • Apply two coats of Ducato.
  • When the polish is completely dry, use a sponge to dab Barry M and pop nail glam on your nails (for water colour ho-to, see tutorial here).
  • Place a decal.
  • Apply top coat.

<ring finger>

  • Apply base coat.
  • Apply two coats of L’Oreal on bottom half, and Ducato on top half of the nail.
  • Place decals.
  • Apply top coat.

<little finger>

  • Apply base coat.
  • Apply two coats of Ducato.
  • When the polish is dry, apply Barry M at the top, and pop nail glam at the bottom.
  • Place decals.
  • Apply top coat.

OTT? Maybe so, but these crazy colours and patterns are injecting real fun into my married-to-my-computer life at the moment!

  1. Hi Tanya, I don’t know where you live, but I’m pretty sure you could try Amazon (search for ‘clear waterslide decal’). Then you can download and print out the decal design – click ‘tutorial on how to use the decal here’ at the top of the article to read my last week’s post (you can download the decal from that post too). Thanks for stopping by!
