Out of all the nail art trends I’ve seen this year, the two I dislike the most are tribal and ikat. I don’t know why, I just think they are too busy and don’t ever look clean enough for my tastes. Needless to say, I had no inspiration for this and I don’t particularly like it
I recently won a giveaway by Maiden Aunt, and one of the prizes was this beauty: Black Satin by OPI. This raises my OPI count to two polishes! Whee! This color really is stunning though, its a deep grey metallic polish with hints of shimmer. It is clearly not black. But I really like it!
I stamped over the grey with a brown metallic polish. They were very low contrast so I added dots in blue. Honestly, I think I liked it better before I added the dots! They are so bright that they drown out the brown. Oh well, live and learn!
- Grey: OPI – Black Satin
- Brown: Pure Ice – Magic
- Blue: Zoya – Wednesday
- Stamp: Bundle Monster – 204
At least this mani is suitably shiny in the sunlight! I though of matting it…but decided the blue would only stand out MORE.
Since my tribal nails are rather disappointing, go check out what the other girls put together for the 31 Day Challenge!
