Winter Aztec

I haven't done an aztec mani for a while as I've always thought it was quite a summery style. However, as winter draws in and the days get shorter I've seen a lot of pale chunky knit sweaters around. The knit patterns reminded me a little of a simple aztec design and the colour schemes inspired me to try a more wintery approach.

For these nails I used Models Own 'Utopia' as a base, and their nail art pen for the detail. This is the first time I've done an aztec with only two colours and I was impressed with the result. The colours, teamed with the pattern, reminded me of a cozy woolen knitted jumper. In fact, the very next day a colleague was wearing a jumper which matched perfectly! 

This has inspired me to apply a wintery twist to some of my other summer manis.
