The One With The Balmain Tribal Nails

More fashion inspired nails today. These are from Balmain's Resort 2012 collection. I wore these a few weeks ago to Long Island Nail Tech Network Day. I was looking around for some inspiration when I came across this dress and immediately knew I had to do something with it. They took me 2 days to finish because I kept getting interrupted but I reallyyy really loved the way they came out. Plus they're blue and orange! Yay!

I started off with a custom mixed yellow gel polish. I then added a darker brown to the base and roughly sponged it over the nails to give it a similar texture to dress pattern. I painted everything else with acrylic paint and some custom gel colors for the larger shapes. Everything was topped off with 2 coats of Gelish Topcoat. 

aaand my friend Sana gave me a fancy schmancy accent finger henna tattoo
