Ikat Nails

Hi everyone!

As the title suggests, I have some ikat nails to show you today.  I first seen these on instagram, and one of my favourite nail girls on there (@lafemmelulu) did this amazing ikat mani, and posted a quick tutorial on how to do these.  In my opinion hers are much, much better but for my first try at these I don't think they were so bad.


I started off with a really nice neutral shade of (what I think is) Color Club Earthy Angel.  I love these shades of polish.  I just find them comforting.  I randomly added some red blobs in China Glaze - Hey Sailor, and added OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls in the centre of the red.  Then using a black striping polish I randomly added little black wisps around the red polish to complete the look.



I don't know what ikats are, but I like the print!  And so do many other bloggers because I've seen this popping up a lot this week.

What do you all think of the ikat pattern?

Have a great weekend everyone!

  2. Love it Julie! Ikat is growing on me! I didn't like it at first, but with the right colour combinations, like yours, it looks really cool. Great job!
