I am beginning to feel that at times (read mostly) some magnetic forces pull you towards it, whenever you are standing neutral. And you unknowingly get drifted along. I always get pulled towards Neons when I am blank about choosing colours and Florals/Tribal patterns when I am clueless on Patterns. I don’t know, it’s like when in doubt I pick up neons as colours and tribals as patterns. Today I did not pick neon because I was reviewing NewU polish – Carmine Pink (See swatches and read review here). Ready with the pretty peachy polish, I was wondering on what on to do on them, when a gust of wind took my mind to Tribals. Lol.
My heart instantly agreed to my brain because I wanted to do a freehand. Tribals need precision because you are working with lines and they ought to bestraight, clean and crisp. Having known the downside of tribal patterns, I still plunged into it. With nothing specific in mind, I picked up the brush and continued painting. I had to do couple of redos because the lines were not as neat. But that’s what Tribal Prints are about.
The base as told above is NewU – Carmine Pink which is a warm Coral Peachy Color. I loved the base. I did not want the work to be very colourful because it would interfere with the softness of this coral base. So I just picked up a Sky Blue, White and Black Acrylic Paints. I got these for review from BornPrettyStore and you can buy them here. Also, you could get a 10% flat sitewide off if you use my coupon code HQBQ10.
I am not very happy with the end result though because I felt the punch was missing. I don’t know may be I was expecting a more colourful outcome, you know how your mind is sensitised to imagine in one direction sometimes :). But my friends did like it.
