Go crazy for zig zags this season and embrace the Aztec print.  The perfect print for summer holidays ahead, why not clash prints and opt for Aztec-inspired nail art too!  Our favourite nail blogger, Emma from Boom Nails has put together a nail tutorial for one of our favourite trends of the season, Aztec Prints so that you can get the look too.  Over to Emma…

  1. Do a base coat
  2. Paint your base colour. You can choose any colour for this design - I went for mainly white, with one purple nail and one green nail on each hand
  3. Get hold of a black nail art pen. Start with a row of triangles. I did the outlines first, then filled them all in
  4. Draw a row of short verticle lines underneath your triangles
  5. Do a zig zag line across the tip of your nail. Then copy the same line a bit below it
  6. Draw a line of dashes
  7. FIll in the last bit of free space on your nail with a zig zag, and put some little mini dots in the gaps
  8. Repeat these same patterns on your other nails. Change up the order and add in some of your own patterns too if you like!
  9. Finish with a really good top coat, like Seche Vite
