Black & White Scallop Dot Tips With Bronze Gemstone Nails

Tribal Nails - Black and White Scallop Dot Manicure with Bronze Gemstones, Perfect for Coachella

In the spirit of music festival season kicked off by Coachella, I thought it would be fun to do a tribal, scalloped dot tips manicure. It was inspired by a River Island Coachella Kimono, sold at one of my favrorite online shops ASOS.com and previewed below.

I thought I’d use my Zoyas only for this mani as a fun giveaway reminder. If you haven’t already entered, my massive Zoya giveaway ends tonight!

The inspiration for my tribal manicure has a black and white scalloped beaded design, and works in some beautiful bronzed beads. I used Zoya Purity and Zoya Raven, both swatched at my Zoya Gilty Pleasures post, which also featured Zoya’s 18k Gold top coat in the same set!

Start with two coats of white cream polish, topped off with a fast dry top coat. I used Zoya Purity.

Next, place a blob of black polish on a paper plate, I used Zoya Raven, and dab your nail art dotting tool into the polish and then onto your nail. Don’t press too hard, or else your dots may turn out too big.

From my dotting tool set, I used both sides of the white pen. After using the large side for the first row of dots in the scallop, I alternated every other row with the large and small dots, for a total of four rows.

Next, using tweezers and my quick dry top coat, I added in a bronze gemstone at the base of each nail.
