It's all gone a bit aztec...

If you saw my post on my Barry M collection, you'll probably have guessed I love nail varnish and having my nails painted a variety of colours. Yesterday I was a bit bored so decided to look on Youtube to find some simple nail art tutorials. There were loads of cute designs but I don't have a dotting tool so thought it would be hard to achieve most of the ones that I looked at. I also came across some aztec designs that looked incredible and couldn't believe how simple they were to do on yourself! For the design I did on myself I took inspiration from a few different videos. Sorry for the dodgy photos, the lighting in my room was awful and I didn't have much time to take the pictures.

The process was really simple, I painted my nails with the light blue then painted different angled lines with the dark blue and coral. Once they were dry, I outlined the shapes I'd made with the bright colours with my black Model's Own nail art pen. I filled the gaps that were left with dots and a variety of lines to make the aztec look complete!

Are there any designs you've tried out recently that were surprisingly easy but looked great?
