Tuesday Nailtique: DIY Tribal Print Manicure

The summer heat is on!  This warm weather calls for fun, fun, fun!  Accessorize with these bright, tribal print nails.  Refinery29 has a great tutorial.  This will take a little bit of time but look at the beautiful results!

You Need:
Base + top coat
Nail polish colors (white, orange,  yellow, pink, green, blue, black (or whatever you have on hand))
Nail brush
Orangewood stick

Step 1 : Paint your base coat
Step 2 : Start off by painting all of your nails with the aqua polish.
Step 3: Use a nail-art brush to paint a thick fuchsia stripe down the center of each nail.
Step 4: Dip your nail-art brush in the green polish and paint three or four (depending on how many fit) evenly-spaced, diagonal lines on the left side of each nail.
Step 5 : Use the nail-art brush to paint four horizontal yellow lines on the right side of each nail.
Step 6: Once the stripes have dried, take the nail-art brush and dip it in white polish and use it to outline the top and bottom edges of the green lines, and the left side of the pink stripe.
Step 7: Outline the top and bottom edges of the yellow lines and the right side of the pink stripe with black polish.
Step 8: Take an orangewood stick and dip it in the orange polish, then lightly apply small dots on the pink stripe going down the center of the nail.
Step 9: Follow right next to red with orange, let dry
Step 10 : Apply top coat
