Ikat Matte Nail Art


For those of you that follow my Instagram you will already have seen the nasty break I got on two fingers at the grocery store, for those of you that don't...folllow me please! I love Instagram and how it's a two way conversation. Anyway, these are my nubbins and this is the last week for Eeek! By that I mean the last of the one week manicure prompts before the big July challenge begins. I will be joining in, but putting no pressure on myself to contribute daily. It's summer, and I'll be spending as much time as possible with the kiddies and Mr. LADYMAID.


Today's prompt was matte, and I love the final look! This is two coats of Takko Nirvana with topcoat and then matte topcoat. For the ikat design I used a base of white acrylic in a rough triangle, then added a rough yellow one inside. The magic happens when you add the black last with short strokes in the centre and around the edge.



Super easy if your brush is small, and still looks great on nubbins!

Cheers all,
