Ikat nails

Ever since I saw this trend getting big, I had to try it out! So here we go: 
The colors I used were a turquoise from Rue 21, Lime Crime's Peach ❤ Cream, Finger Prints in white, and Stripe Rite in Black. I also used Essie's Matte About You too! Anyway... Here we go:
But let me give you a detailed break down of these pictures.
Two coats of the Rue 21 Turquoise. 
Lime Crime Peaches ❤ Cream comes next in little cloud shapes. I used a nail dotter tool to make them. I'm obsessed with nail dotters...if you don't own any, but some right now! They cost practically nothing on Amazon...but they're priceless to nailart! 
I then used Finger Paints white to add a little spot/blob to each orange cream "cloud." One of the things that I love about the ikat design is that it doesn't have to be perfect! 
I love the Stripe Rite nailpolishes because their brushes are super, super it makes it easy to create itty bitty, skinny lines like these! 
No flash!
