September Tri-Polish Challenge: Day 2

Today is day 2 of the Tri-Polish Challenge! Here's a recap for those of you who don't know what it's about. I just joined in on the Tri-Polish Challenge hosted by the wonderful Debbie Crumpet. They have been doing this since March! I'm very behind but better late than never right? The idea behind this challenge is that three colors are chosen for that month, and you have to pick a polish from your stash for each color, and stick to those specific polishes for the challenge, which involves four manicures, posted the last two Tuesdays and Thursdays of the month.  (You also have free use of black/white/silver/ gold and glitter toppers).

The colors for September are Lilac, Blue and Pink. I chose Julep Renee, Zoya Edie and Sinful Colors Folly. Today I tried to attempt something I've only done once before: Tribal. I'm terrible at it and my hands are not steady at all. I also have a habit of not letting my nail art fully dry before my applying top coat so it smudges *sadface.

I hand drew everything. No tape or anything to guide me. I painted one coat of Julep Renee as my base. For nail art firstly I did a white upside down pyramid shape. Then I outlined it in black and drew concentric lines making a V shape. I filled in the gap with Sinful Colors Folly. Then I used my brush and made a messy blob in between the end of the design and the pink. Lastly I used Zoya Edie and made dots with a dotting tool. Again I apologize for the streaks due to my stubborn unability to wait for my nail art to dry before applying top coat.

Does anyone have any tips and tricks on how to do tribal art? If you do please share them with me this is one design I would like to try and master or be adequate at. Thanks for stopping by!
