Today I have a nail art to show you as part of the Nail Art Sunday going on in Sweden.

This is my first Ikat pattern and there is a lot to improve to this pattern lol. But I still love the way it turned out! I started with the Michelle – B56 that I already had on my nails when I did this and used OPI- My Boyfriend scales walls for the white and OPI- Black onyx for the black. The pattern is really easy to do but you need a smaller brush than I had. I thought my brush was already small enough but I was wrong. Find the smallest nail art brush you have for this pattern, it’s much easier that way.

Have you tried the Ikat pattern yet?

    Fint det var :) Visste faktiskt inte att det hette ikat så där lärde jag mig nått på kuppen också :)

    Jag tror jag tycker det var tur att du valde en “för tjock” pensel!

    Cait (Polish Hound): Thank you, try it!

    Cactus: Tack :)

    Gelic’ nail art: Tack :)

    Pamsan: Det är ett roligt mönster att både göra och bära :)

    Chaosophia: Jag tror jag måste testa med en tunnare också och få lite mer kontroll på de svarta linjerna. Nu kändes det som det var mer penseln som styrde…

    drinkcitra: Thank you! You’ll have to try it :)
