The Crumpet's Nail Tarts 33DC Day 4 - Tribal

Greetings All!

Just a quick post today. Tribal nails are something I really have no interest in - they just aren't my cup of tea. It seemed like a bit of a waste to spend ages freehanding something I have no interest in. So I cheated and stamped.





I used three untried polishes for this manicure - adsa Cackle, Sally Hansen Insta Dri in Raspberry Race, and an unnamed blue by Pink Tease, who make pretty terrible, very opaque (good for stamping!) polish. Then I stamped with Konad Black and Cheeky Jumbo Plate 1, Viva Mexico. I'm fairly happy with the outcome - it doesn't look like it only took me 10 minutes!

  1. I agree with your opinion on tribal nails. I am really not good at free hand. I do not consider it cheating. It looks great and got the job done. LOL! You chose beautiful colors!

    1. Thank you!

      I kind of felt like I should have been bothered to make the effort, but it's just not a style I really want to wear!

      I love that the stamping covered up my fairly rubbish stripes and dots so well!

  3. I've read not many people are fond of "tribal" nails, I love them, though they're hard to achieve. I like yours too :)

    1. I think we all have patterns/styles/techniques that we aren't overly fond of. I do admire the work that goes into tribal nails though!

  4. For low interest levels, this turned out like you had a passion for it!
