I♥IKAT. Ikat’s have always been a personal favourite of mine ever since I stumbled upon the trend on tumblr. Spring’s just arrived here in Australia so pastels are pretty much the GO-TO colours at the moment. Hearts + Pretty Pastels + Slap on those characteristic black lines on top, et voilà! Find the source of my inspiration as well as bonus pictures of my right hand and its extremely short index nail (*gasp) on my blog! I’ve also had a request for a tutorial on these so that should be up soon as well!

Zigzag Ikat Nail Tutorial
Have ready: 4 different shades of blue (or other) polish, a white polish, top coat and a striping brush/ thin paint brush. 
1. Paint your nails with two coats of white as a base.
2. With the darkest blue polish and your striping brush, paint tiny vertical strokes/ dashes, one next to the other, creating the starting zigzag pattern for the design.
3/4/5. With the remaining blue polish (in order from darkest to lightest), paint on the same tiny strokes/ dashes following the zigzag pattern created in step 1.
6/7/8. Continue to fill in the rest of your nail following the pattern. Don&#8217;t forget to clean up around the cuticles with acetone and a small brush (:
9. Finish with a top coat, et voilà: blue ombre zigzag ikat nails (that&#8217;s a mouthful, must think of a better name!)
10. Play around with the colours, switch them up, the possibilities are endless! If you don&#8217;t have the different shades of a colour, just mix your own with the polish that you do have. Also, you don&#8217;t have to only use 4 shades, go crazy and use 10!    tag me #nailsat2am I&#8217;d love to see! ;D
