Funky Fresh Tribal for Thanksgiving

Hey, everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm really excited that it's Thanksgiving because that means that the Holiday season is in full swing! And today I have a fun tribal mani to share with you, so keep reading!

I recently received my very first order from MoYou London and wowowow, I was not disappointed! The images are such high quality and so beautiful! I ended up getting four different plates to take advantage of their recent free shipping deal, and one of them was Plate 27 from the Explorer Collection. Finally, I have the awesomeness of tribal print without the time-consuming hassle!

For the non-accent nails, I started with a base of OPI My Vampire is Buff, and used my fan brush with China Glaze Custom Kicks and China Glaze Cross Iron 360 to make some messy stripes. Then I used Wet n Wild Black Creme to stamp some designs from the new stamping plate. I LOVE the way it turned out! Then for my accent nails I tried to create a turquoise stone using the water spotted technique. I wasn't super please with how they came out but they were still pretty.

Materials Used
OPI My Vampire is Buff
China Glaze Custom Kicks
China Glaze Cross Iron 360
Sally Hansen Black Creme
Essie Good as Gold
MoYou stamping plate #27 (Explorer Collection)

I think that stamping plates are especially useful during the rush and chaos of holidays because they allow you to create amazing manicures with minimal effort! What do you think? Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Curse you for making me want this plate now...

    1. As we've said before, we're good at enabling one another! lol

  2. Wow! The accent nails do look like real turquoise stones with awesome gold sparkles!! Love the colour combo of the tribal design too :D

    1. Thanks so much, my dear! I kinda wish the black parts of the turquoise stone had turned out a liiiiiittle bit finer, but I still loved the result! And that kinda burnt orange and teal are my favorite colors of all time! ^_^

  3. WOW! This is awesome Millie! I love the traditional Southwest colors you used and the turquoise stone accents look so realistic!! <3

    1. Thanks so much, my dear! Those shades of turquoise and orange are my favorite colors ever! ^_^
