Around the world... to a type of tribal print that is common to South American cultures, but also references a type of textile design common to all cultures all around the world - Ikat.
I started with a lemming slayed - Orly Cashmere Cardigan, a dusty lavender that applied like butter and is probably one of the prettiest and most flattering polishes I've ever used on me.
I found this great tutorial by Kayla Shevonne that helped me create my first Ikat print nail art! I used a white striper to create the irregular triangle shapes common to this tribal print.
Inside the white, I used a nail art brush to fill in with Zoya Sailor. Among mainstream brands, Zoya and Orly are among my faves for consistent, lovely formulas.
The print really pops when you outline it with black, in that same wispy, irregular triangular shape.
It's hard to see here, but I also added a little bit of the black to the center of the triangles.
And, here's the bottle shot: Orly Cashmere Cardigan, Zoya Sailor, and nail art stripers in white and black.
What do you think of the Ikat print? What colors would you use?
