Tribal Chevron

I've been quite busy lately, and I barely have the time to write this, so I'll keep it short.

I fell in love with wooden effect with my blue Wooden Tribal mani and I couldn't wait to try it again. These nails were inspired by a phone case I saw on Etsy and then by another very similar one (shown after the jump).

Safari Sunset (+tutorial)

I found new source of inspiration - phone cases. So I browsed Etsy and when I saw this one I knew. I recreated the pattern, excited. It turned out later that the pattern (called Safari Sunset) is originally by a luggage design company Vera Bradley. So now I can show you nails that match not only a phone case but a lot of other accessories, mainly bags.

Why the gel pen you ask? Oh, yes! I used this gel pen for the white details, it's super easy to work with, especially if you want to do swirls.

Aaand here comes the inspiration. I edited the phone case in the photo, I admit. I couldn't help it really, I wanted to have a picture with my nails + the inspiration, although I don't own it (I don't even own an iPhone to use it with, you see.)

Wooden, Blue and Aztec

I didn't know what to call this post. I did a mani inspired by (well known, inspiring) Chelsea Queen and she calls it Abstract Aztec. It has wooden look, blue colour and aztec motif, so for the title I figured.. whatever.

More on how I did this after the jump.
