A girl and her love of nail polish

It’s tribal day here for the 30 Day Challenge. I really didn’t know what to do for this one. Tribal isn’t usually a pattern this polish groupie rocks, so I looked around online and found two posts that I used as inspiration, this one and the Aztec pattern featured here.

For never having done anything like this before, I’m actually happy with the way it turned out. Don’t think I’d ever sit down and choose it on my own, but hey, this challenge is all about expanding my horizons.

This manicure includes four polishes, two that fit the bill for the 30 Days of Untrieds challenge I’m participating in simultaneously:

  • Zoya Yara (untried)
  • Zoya Codie (untried)
  • Orly Rage
  • Kiss Nail Art Paint White

I picked up both Zoya Yara and Zoya Codie on clearance during separate trips to Ulta. Zoya Yara is olive green with a strong green shimmer, while Zoya Codie is a dark blackish brown. Zoya describes Codie as having olive undertones, though I hadn’t read that when I decided to pair them together. Orly Rage is a metallic rose gold.

I used the Kiss striper polish for the freehand white lines and used a small dotting tool for the dots.

How about you, do you ever wear tribal patterns outside of nail art challenges? 🙂
