S&S 30 Day Challenge: Tribal

BarryM Indigo

I was determined not to do a brown manicure today and wanted to channel some of the colourful fabrics out there. I chose a bright blue selection of polishes and started off making a rough ruffle pattern with a small brush trying not to make things too neat and just layer it all up.

I started with a base of Rimmel Pro Aqua Cool although you can’t see any of this once the rows of colour were added on top. As always I used Natural Collection White adding BarryM Indigo a bright blurple and BarryM Cyan Blue. I really liked this combination, I had initially planned all different colours and patterns but just kept going with this one. Kind of reminds me of those thick Native American blankets.


As soon as I had finished painting I was called for dinner so quickly snapped some shots and headed downstairs. The more I looked at it I wondered if this really looked tribal at all. So I decided to rework and add to the manicure. I am not sure which way I prefer it. I added some sparkly silver dots (why don’t La Femme name their polishes?!) and removed the polish from my ring finger. I reapplied the Aqua Cool base – just two thin coats here, I do like the Rimmel Pro polishes because they come with a great  wide brush and do apply nicely. I think I might invest in a few more of these at some point… let the polish wishlist grow some more. I stamped on feathers/leaves using BM-222 in Natural Collection White – I just altered the angles slightly and did my best not to stamp over the top of the other feathers (quite a feat for me). To tie-in the ring finger with the rest of the manicure I added a thin vein of silver up the middle of these feathers. I really like how soft the combination of colours are on this finger. I’m not sure if it completely matches up with the rest of the manicure but I like it anyway. So what do you think of my native american tribal manicure? Sorry about the blurry thumb, my hand decided to get the shakes.
