Nail Challenge Collaborative presents: Inspired by a garment - Ikat

Hi all!

This month we're post mani's inspired by a garment. Today's inspiration is a lovely white and coral ikat top I own, you can see it here. I didn't just copy the top, but this is inspired by obviously.

  • Polish My Life - Pumpkin Mashup
  • Polish My Life - Birthday Suit
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Dark Matter
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

Base: 2 coats of Pumpkin Mashup. I added the ikat pattern with a thin nail art brush and Birthday Suit and Dark Matter. Sealed it all in with Elemental Ward.

Ikat patterns are not that hard to do, they don't have to be precise, which is the charm.

I got a lot of compliments on these nails when I wore them to work (to match my top obviously).

Love, Brethil

  1. I really like this ikat design.

  2. You have a lot of lovely DIY nail art design. Easy to do and we only need nail polish and dotted tool. I'm excited to try this one.
