With Easter around the corner I wanted to do something Czech related, I was considering traditional Easter eggs, but then I remembered this print, typical for south-east Moravia - my region, I was looking at so many times at my grandma's and wondering, how to replicate it on my nails. Well, I tried!

I started the design on my left ring finger, with the big flower, using acrylic paint on Gabriella Salvete 148 white base. I got tired painting with acrylics so I partly switched to gel pens when I got to my right hand. Gel pens are easier to control with my left than a brush. That's why my hands don't look entirely the same.
To stick with the Easter theme I chose to make three of my nails more tribal-like, but still inspired by the traditional pattern.
What do you think? How do you feel about using traditional motives in nail art?
And do you prefer the left hand or the right hand look?
