Tribal Nails

I finally decided to do some tribal designs on my actual nails, instead of on nail wheels. I thought I was going to make a mess of it since it was my first attempt on myself but it didn't turn out too bad. The only bit I don't really like is the white part on my middle finger, I should have done it in black.

I used OPI - Skull & Glossbones for the base, Barry M - Fuchsia, and the black and white detailing is a mixture of acrylic paint and nail art pens. 

I did make a pretty big mess of my right hand, though. How on earth are you supposed to paint on the detail  neatly with your left hand? (if you're right handed, of course). Almost impossible!

In other news, I'm desperately trying to think of a new name for my blog. Lush Lacquer was never meant to be permanent and I've had it for much longer than I planned. I don't like it at all. I just can't think of anything else though! :( 



  1. This was your first attempt???? What? Amazing! Love the colours! x

  2. I love these! I suck so bad at tribal nail art, it just looks like i've let a toddler do some doodling

  3. Thanks Chantelle! I've done a design or two on a nail wheel, but this was first on my actual nails :)

    I bet it looks better than you think, Raych :)

  4. this is really good, i love tribal prints but they take agggesss and i like it to be perfect loll and i give up when it comes to doing it on my right hand loll! the colours you used are all sooo pretty and work so well together : )
    I've also been wanting to change my blog name but inspiration is yet to strike loll !

  5. Thanks! I think if I'd tried to make it perfect, I'd still be sat there doing it now :\

  6. Im working on becoming ambidextrous but it's not working too well so far LOL. Your nails looks awesome!

  7. Thanks Holly! I am also working on it, but I don't think I'll ever succeed. :\

  8. Hey! I hope you see this. Someone took this design/photo, removed your watermark and put it on weheartit.com,

    If've seen it floating around tumblr like that all day! :(

    As a fellow nail arty person I always get so annoyed when I see stuff like that happen, so I just wanted to let you know.

    Your nail art is amazing by the way!
