I can honestly say it had never crossed my mind to paint design on my naked nails without a colour underneath. I totally overlooked it and then saw it someone (on pinterest most likely) and thought i'd give an aztec ish kind of pattern a go.
Considering i had no idea what designs to actually do i was pleased with the result. I only wanted to use 4 colours so i didn't get overwhelmed with choice of what colour to use where. I started off with just doing red tips and went from there really.
Surprisingly this stayed on quite well and although it was a bit of a messy job; for my first attempt it could have gone worse.
Definitly want to try this with more vibrant colours like bright pink and green!
