31 Days of Nail Art - Day 16: Tribal Nails

Hi Everyone!

I'm so sorry for my absence!  Unfortunately lots of not so good life stuff is happening and it really required my attention.  I'm going to be continuing now the daily challenge posts and I'll be doubling and tripling up some days to catch up.

So, today is tribal nails.  Now I'm taking this in the broader sense of Native Art.  I live in BC, Canada so Native Art is tremendously culturally significant here.  I chose to attempt to recreate some of the local style of Haida Art.

Here's my inspiration photo...

This is not my best attempt but I felt out of practise already! I think I'll revisit this design another time when I'm not feeling so stressed. 

This is just China Glaze - White on White with acrylic paint for the whale.

Hope you like it!

Please check out what the other ladies have done. We'll be posting simultaneously throughout the month. Then, come back here tomorrow at the same Bat-time, same Bat-channel for GLITTER Nails! (Hopefully, Ha!)
