Day 16: Tribal (Muted Tribal)

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!

At least this mani is suitably shiny in the sunlight! I though of matting it…but decided the blue would only stand out MORE.
