Gradation, Neons, & Tribal!

Hello everyone! So I'm really excited about this post! I really like these nails AND this is the first post since the blog make over. Which if ya didn't know happened yesterday. So what so you all think of this new look? I really feel like it has a cleaner feel. Still the same color scheme which I'm happy about, but I feel like it's all fresh and clean! :)

Now enough about the new look and on to nails! Today for you all I have a neon gradation tribal mani! I am really loving these!


Sooo bright, and fun! This was all free handed, no tape just a thin paint brush and a dotter. Well and a sponge for my gradation! I am not all that experienced with tribal manis but that is a goal of mine for this year since I love them so much.


For this look I used 3 China Glaze polishes and 1 Color Club. The glitter is Color Club Sexy Siren. It's a holo turquoise glitter that doesn't show it's full glitteryness on the camera, trust me, it's stunning! Then the bright bold blue is China Glaze Hanging in the Balance. The lighter blue/minty color is China Glaze At Vase Value. Then lastly the green is China Glaze Grass is Lime Greener. The white lines are just done with acrylic paint.

Personally I love these colors together! I don't know why, but they are some of favorites! Now here is one last photo!

So now I want to know what do you all think of this funky tribal!? I don't really know what it is about tribal that I love since I am horrible at straight lines but I LOVE them! Also what do you all want to see next!?

Happy Painting!

  1. This is such a bright and happy design!! I'm not that into tribal patterns so much but this fresh colour combo makes want to try :D

    1. Well thank you so much! And glad these made you like the design to an extent! I love tribals so much, not really sure why! Maybe because they are all each so unique!

  2. I loooove tribal patterns! And I really like this one, it reminds me of hot summer =) Too bad you painted it only on two nails, I'd love to see more! ^^

    1. Thanks, and me too! I love summer so much! Miss it! I know the original plan had been to do ALL nails tribal but the gradation didn't turn out right, and I was out of time so I had to just do middle ones. Maybe next time haha!! :)
