NOTD: Aztec Nails

So I think I am the only person who has not been sporting red, white and blue nails this weekend, and the main reason for that would be this. The other day I was so bored that I decided to try my hand at some "proper" nail art (no crackle or magnetic polishes to be seen here!). After seeing so many pretty pictures of tribal nail designs on Pinterest, I wanted to have a go at my own version of these aztec nails, and I was so proud of them that I didn't want to ruin them with what would have been a failed attempt at union jack nails. Mine aren't quite as intricate as others I've seen, but I am proud that I was able to draw somewhat straight lines with my left hand nonetheless!


I hope you like them! Have you been sporting Jubilee nails this weekend?

  1. These look awesome, Frances! I'm still yet to attempt an aztec design, but it's on my list to try. I did make a feeble attempt at union jack nails, but it was a shoddy mess so my nails have been half-done cupcakes all weekend.

  8. These look really pretty, I am hopeless at nail art! I haven't been sporting red white and blue nails either as I still have Shellac on my nails.

    1. Thanks beaut! They were surprisingly easy, all I did was paint my nails white and then add randon stripes of colour, and then I actually used a black liquid eyeliner to draw on the black designs wherever I thought they fit and sealed it in with a top coat :) x
