Aztec Nails

24 Jan

I have recently been seeing lots of Aztec inspiration on Pinterest so I had to give it a go for myself. Last December I did design some subtle Aztec/fairisle and snowflake nail art, but this time I wanted to go all out with colour:

Aztec Nails

To create this design, I painted all my nails with a base of Rimmel Lycra Pro Peppermint, and my signature nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro Show Off pink. I then drew on the black lines using a fine tipped brush, I added pink and white lines in between. Once this had all dried I added the dots on and between the lines and covered with a top coat.

    Hi there! Loving your blog, my name is Katie Elliott I am the creator of Tag a ( The website works like this: each week I announce a new fashion trend, and people then tag themselves on Facebook wearing that trend. This is done by tagging their picture with the Tag a Trend Facebook page. The other option is to directly add your pics to the facebook wall at or to email pics to The best pics then appear on my site.
    This week’s trend (as of tomorrow) is aztec print and as can see you are loving the trend, I thought you might be interested in getting involved and tagging yourself in this fab print. The picture will appear on both my site and Facebook (both with a direct link back to your blog.)
    Look forward to hearing from you!
