Ikat pattern

Ikat tutorial

Since my lovely friend Helene aka @henulle got me some of the ILNP summer collection at the same time as she bought hers, we decided to do a twin nail design featuring one of our new polishes. What we finally decided on was to make an ikat pattern, neither of us had made one before so it was long overdue. As out main color we chose the stunning green holo ‘Rehab’ and made two nails with ikat pattern.

  1. Paint your base color, i used OPI ‘Skull & glossbones’
  2. Paint the shapes with squiggly lines, I used ILNP ‘Rehab’
  3. Fill in with next color, here I used Models Own ‘Bikini’
  4. Lastly I outlined with black squiggly lines. OPI ‘Black Onyx’
  5. Top coat and clean up.

This is one of these designs where you don’t have to be precise. Just have fun with it and squiggle away!
