mosaic nail art

33DC: Based on a pattern in my house

My apartment is in the old part of town and in the hallway of my building the walls are tiled with Andalucian tiles as is traditional in this area. They have a kind of mosaic look to them and I thought they’d be fun and a bit of a challenge for a pattern in my house translated onto my nails.

They were actually easier than I thought they’d be and I enjoyed doing them and trying to create a mosaic effect with a dotting tool. I’m pretty pleased with the result as I thought they had the potential to either look great or be a huge disaster! I hope I’ve gone more towards the great end of the spectrum!
