For my tribal print nails, I started out with a base of Zoya Neely (swatches below) and used acrylic paint to add the print. I cut one of my detail brushes down to practically nothing so that I could attempt the tiny detail. Unfortunately, I didn't give myself enough time to do a full manicure with the print, so I settled with just two accent nails. The rest of the nails are Zoya Bobbi to coordinate with the cranberry red of the print...
I actually really liked these on my nails, but looking at the photos I now see all the imperfections. Must stop looking so close... back away from your screens people, I promise it looks better ;)
My design was inspired by this image, although I decided to go with different colors, mostly because my acrylic paint supply is limited. I got through about the top half of the pattern before I ran out of nail space ;)
Some fresh swatches of Zoya Neely, because I looked at my previous ones and they were waaay to green. It is more of this soft mint green cream. Very pretty. The formula is very creamy, maybe a bit too thick, but I didn't have any problems with application. It provides full coverage in two coats. Swatches are with no top coat...
