What Were You Thinkin?! Trikat?!

I don't know, to be honest. 
I don't know whether I was going for funky Tribal or for the weirdest Ikat ever.

I just know my mani turned out ... erm... different (!) than anything that was on my mind and... I liked it like that! ;)

I won't keep the talk long, for I guess the pictures talk much better for themselves:

It all started like this!
I'm actually happy I took this inbetween photo, 'cause the end result's got nothing to do with what you see here - hahahah
I went with a light base colour, using Inocos Amarelinho, and then did these shapes with my neon pink striper: golden Rose Nail Art No.103.
I know this isn't the best picture to show you the neon shapes (light does matter when taking pictures), but it's just for you to see how it all began ;)

And then there was... TRIKAT! :p

Bam! What the hell happened?! Well, I just added a couple things! ;)
Know what I mean now?
It's not tribal and it's not ikat either. Actually if those two had a baby, maybe this could be it! hahaha

After the base design you see in the first photo, I took my striper Kiss SPA12 Black and roughly outlined the yellow shapes that showed through the pink ones.

Then I picked up my light blue striper, Golden Rose Nail Art No.116, and did the vertical lines in between those, all the way along each nail. 

To finish it all off, I took my striper Kiss SPA02 White and did tiny white marks to the bottom and edge of each nail.

This just goes to prove that my mind goes places - haha
Hope you like this Trikat and if anything that it makes you laugh at my weird skills (!) and helps you have a great day! :D

Let me know in the comments below what you think of this...erm... design and have yourselves a blast of a day! ;)
