You know sometimes you are just in mood to jump out of your comfort zone for once and try out something different. I had one of such moments lately and I tried on a negative space and tribal fusion mani.
Now, tribal prints have been my all my all time favourite and quite frankly there is nothing out of comfort zone here. But the kind of patterns that I used this time for tribal print is definitely different. Blending tribal with negative space was also a challenge.
So if not for the result, I am still happy I did try something different. These are kind of patterns I had been eyeing on for long but couldn’t gather the courage. It feels so good to challenge oneself and come out fairly successful. I am sipping that feeling now.
This mani is all free hand with nail polish and acrylic paints. The white I used is Sally Hansen White On, the neon pink is Models Own Polish for Tans- Sun Hat, Turquoise is Models Own Hypergel – Turquoise and the black is acrylic paint.
I know I have not done my best, but trust me a lot dedication and time has gone into it. It was a lot of detailed work for a neck after being on laptop for 11 hours of work. I literally had an ache in my neck and shoulder after this. I am not trying to be a cry baby here, all I am saying is I definitely underestimated the amount of time and precision this would take.
I am really taken away by prints like this. I definitely plan to do more of these inspite of all the neck pain. I would say it was worth. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Thanks to #nailathattechnique challenge which pushed me for negative space. I have done negative space in past, but nothing like this.
What you think on the fusion of negative space and tribal? Did I nail it or fail it?
