How to Create a Tribal Mani

by FabuloCity By Jessica

Here I show a basic tribal print design.


Step 1

Start with a base color

Step 2

Using acrylic paint I painted a stripe at the tip

Step 3

Then created triangles. If you mess up you can use rubbing alcohol to remove the mistake without messing up your polish.

Step 4

I like to outline my triangle then fill in.

Step 5


Step 6

In the empty areas I used blue acrylic paint to make triangles.

Step 7

Adding purple stripes to the empty tip area.

Step 8

Start at the base of the nail with a triangle.

Step 9

Create another on the side

Step 10

And another on the opposite area

Step 11

Keep moving downward.

Step 12


Step 13

I added a purple triangle to fill in emptiness.

Step 14

There are so many different patterns and that's what I love about tribal print. It doesn't have to be perfect and you can do so many different things!
