WNAC - Ikat Pastel

Happy Friday! Another WNAC to share today! :)



Thank goodness for this challenge or else I'd never get to actually focus on any nail art - life just gets in the way. lol :)

Anyway! Here is today's WNAC: pastel ikat. I can't tell you how many times I failed, it wasn't pretty, and even these aren't a real success but they were a lot better than the rest of them!

I don't know if there are "traditional" ikat designs but I certainly went outside the box just to get these done. I don't think the concept of an ikat design is hard, it was the execution that was lost on me. I guess that's why we call these challenges and not just easy-peasies (lol - I'm so weird :D)

I used a lot of colours to achieve this design and a mixture of dry brushing with polishes and line painting with acrylic paint. I think this design is pretty self explanatory but feel free to ask me any questions in the comments if you have any :)

So close! :D

I find this type of paint-as-you-go nail arting is therapeutic in a way, just winging it and see what happens. In fact, that's how I do most of my nail arting - just by the seat of my pants! haha 

I hope you guys like it!

Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy day to check out my little corner :) Feel free to leave me comments/suggestions/feedback below.
