Day 16 – Tribal Print – Orange & Aqua

I really love how these turned out.  I can’t even decide which one is my favorite!  The chevrons are my favorite element.  After this challenge is over, I’m planning on doing another set of tribal nails with just chevrons.

I wanted the design to speak for itself, so I chose four colors that contrast each other really well.  I knew I wanted orange somewhere, so I started with that and then added on from there.  There are so many possibilities with tribal nails!  Seriously, just type it into Google.

I started with a base of Zoya Arizona (an amazing light orange).  For the black, I went with China Glaze Smoke and Ashes.  In real life, you can see the green/blue shimmer – sad it didn’t really show up in pictures.  You can see it a tiny bit on the tip of my thumbnail and on my pinky.  I love how the shimmer in the black kind of matches the aqua, which is China Glaze For Audrey.  The white is Essie Blanc.

I would love to see your tribal nails, so feel free to post links in the comments!
