Neon Tribal Print Inspired by a Phone Case

I'm sure by now you've all seen this cell phone case photo floating around Instagram and Tumblr. Well, I decided to do a manicure inspired by the simple but adorable pattern!

I used a base coat of Essie Blanc, and then picked a bunch of neons to draw on top with a small detail brush! There were a lot, so if you want to know a specific color, just ask!

I tried adding topcoat to the design, but it looked considerably duller, so I am just posting the photos without topcoat.

What do you think?


  1. This is so adorable, I need to try this!

  2. Cute! I love it so much! You used such a variety of colours and I find that makes it really interesting. I don't know if I would like it as much if you had only used 3-4 colours.

  3. What a brilliant idea, that iPhone case looks great! I really like this it looks so fun to do :)

    1. Yeah I'm glad I found the original post! I kept seeing it all over the place!

  4. You recreated it beautifully! I like that you made the lines vertical :)

  5. I have such a crush on neon and white at the moment, looks great, perfect for festivals!
