Trinidad Carnival is soon approaching. I have the privilege of “Playing Mas” (wearing a costume) this year with TRIBE Carnival. Looking at these beautiful costumes have inspired me to create nail art to match. I actually created these samples for my Nail Tech school art competition months ago, and won. I decided to wait until the appropriate time to display them. The time is now. Firstly, let me give credit to, for designing such exquisite designs. All of the pictures are from their website.

The first one is called Spirit Seeker

Next up is Hawkeye

Here is Comanche Sunset


I used a mixture of different techniques here. For some, I inlaid feathers with the glue I use for silk wrap. In another, I inlaid glitter in the acrylic. The rest is just hand paint, and lots of nail glue. You don’t want to lose those precious stones. The polishes are various colors from China Glaze , Essie, and Julep.
