OMD2 - 31DC - Ikat (13th!)


Ugh Ikat. I hate ikat. This one held up the rest of the challenge nails because I just kept redoing it and wasn't happy with it. I'm not really a fan of ikat anyway to be honest. 

Anyway I gave up doing traditional ikat so I attempted this simplified ikat design by Try My Hand. That is what this mani was supposed to look like but mine is pretty fail :( I just don't have much freehand skills and my hand is a bit shaky... also I think I had a bit too much polish on the brush so I ended up with blobs instead of little lines. I'm really not happy with these but I'm throwing in the towel on ikat so I can move on to the other challenge prompts.

Colors used: 
Layla - unnamed white
Color Club - Screen Green*
Color Club - Tumblr Blue*
*I won these polishes in a giveaway... I don't think they are available for purchase anywhere... sorry!

Here are the other prompts if you're interested in joining! Full rules here

  1. This challenge looks so fun, I wasn't able to keep to the 31dnac :( I really like this design, I think it is so fun looking. I also really love the colours, I hadn't seen these shades from color club but they look awesome! xx

    1. I'm not keeping up very well either I'm really behind! :( These Color Club polishes are part of an exclusive collection created for the SXSW festival. I'm not sure where if anywhere they were available for purchase. I was lucky enough to win this set in Color Club's Instagram giveaway :)

  5. I learned something! I didn't know the word 'ikat' until now. :) Maybe you could have added another color in the spaces. :)

  6. I'm not crazy about the ikat design either and have never made an attempt to create it myself. I like your simple design a lot :)
