Aztec print nails

I have been wanting to do tribal nails for a while. I have seen them done a lot recently and didn't just want to reproduce the same nails you see over and over. Then the other day I saw a girl wearing this shirt. I loved the pattern but didn't ask where it was from. So I was sitting at home trying to reproduce something similar off the top of my head when Look Magazine tweeted it! Coincidence win! You can find it in Primark for £10.

Now on to the nails. I painted my nails alternately black and white, then chose the details from the shirt I liked the best and a few other tribal-y touches. I topped it with a Rimmel Matte top coat (over a coat of Seche Vite which smoothed out the slightly bumpy acrylic paint).
