Day 16 - Crackle + Tribal Print

This week's Monday Mani challenge in PAA was crackle, and I felt personally responsible for cheerleading this challenge on SO I thought I'd really go all out with my cracklicure (is that a term? should we make it one?). I did a patchwork tape mani with 5 different crackle colors (yeah, FIVE!) with Pure Ice Kiss Me Here as my base.

Today is also "tribal" day for my nail art challenge. I have never done tribal nails before, and I wasn't sure what to do. I was going to sort of cop out and do nudey nails with some tattoo flash-style nail decals, but decided to take advantage of my already crazy over-the-top nails and added some extra lines and dots to make it "tribal"-y.

mega-awkward claw hand, but I feel like my thumb gets left out :(

I still have my flowery skittles on my right hand, so this will be a hilarious combo for work tomorrow!
