1. Tribal Shield
Bring out your inner warrior with this striking tribal shield design.
With a subtle glitter background and bold black and white lines, this vibrant mani will leave your tips looking both fierce and fabulous!
Our recommendations: Any colour will do for the background - but we suggest our sweet Lilac Breeze. Cover it with a shimmery layer of Dancing Queen, then use Snow White and Black Widow to create the tribal shield design.
2. Tribal French Tips
Sleek and elegant, these silver French tips will definitely add some unique, modern flair to your tribal mani.
Our recommendations: This super-sweet design is pretty easy to recreate. All you need are some of Roxie’s pastel shades (like Mint For Each Other and Lilac Breeze). Then use Snow White and Black Widow for the tribal pattern, and finish with a band of Pixie Dust along the nail tip.
3. Tribal Chevron Nails
Inspired by Native American tribal designs, this chic chevron look is both stylish and tasteful. The beginner-friendly design works great for any occasion, and is sure to be a real crowd-pleaser.
4. Tribal Gradient
Add some fun to your mani with a fresh, colourful tribal gradient! Striking and vibrant, it’s a great way to make the most of your favourite shades.
Also, the vivid ombre background can really help bring your tribal design to life!
Our recommendations: Using a sponge, create the gradient base on each nail with any of your most loved EasyPeel colours. Afterwards, use Black Widow to paint the tribal design, and fill in key areas with something shimmery like Champagne Revelry.
5. Tribal Triangles
When it comes to tribal nail designs, triangles are among the most popular geometric shapes to include. They’re easy to draw and combine well with other shapes, lines, dots and squiggles - and they look great in bold, tribal-esque colours!
Our recommendations: Go wild and create your own tribal triangle nail design with any combination of colours, shapes, dots and lines.
Tribal designs may seem incredibly intricate, but they’re actually pretty easy to create. All you need is a handful of bright polishes and some geometric inspiration, and you’re all set.
