Sunday nail art - 80's Aztec



I love love love (three times = a whole lotta love) the aztec nail vibe at the moment.
If you've been reading my last few posts you'll see that i've been having weekly nail art sessions and this week i attempted my hardest nail art yet. It took 2 long very steady handed hours but I am so pleased with the results. SEE ABOVE.

This is what you need
If you haven’t got the exact colours, any 3 contrasting colours will do for the bases! Just as long as you have the black & white nail art pens, these give you all the top detail. If you don’t have these, you could try using a cocktail stick.
 


      Paint the bases like this… make sure they’re really dry before before the next step.



       Add the stripes over the base. Vertical & horizontal lines.

      Add the white lines


       Draw a triangle on your thumb nail – let this all dry fully before the next step.


     Now you can go mad with zig zags, dots & lines. Fill in the empty spaces.
    

     Wait til it’s all completely dry, use 2 coats of clear top coat & you’re good to go!
