Easter Ikat [Nail Art]

Here's babby's first attempt at Ikat design!  These were really fun to do, but came out a little sloppier than I would have liked.  Next time, I need to leave more room for the black fringe-y outline, and I guess just make each blotch smaller. 

Colors Used: The base color is Illamasqua- Monogamous; the bright blue is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear- Pacific Blue, and the purple is Essie- Play Date.  The black and white are just Stripe Rite stripers, and they were both a little dried out and gloopy, but I did the best I could.

The pointer finger nail is the best, and hopefully I will improve next time I do these!

Happy Easter!
