We'd like to say farewell to dear summer with this Aztec print manicure.

Inspired by the tribal aesthetic in Missoni's Resort 2011 collection, 21-year-old studio artist and creator of ZebberCollective Sarah Havens designed these intricate press-on nails. Her craftsmanship is truly impeccable as she weaves together brightly-colored lines, dots and dashes reminiscent of the artwork created by ethnic groups in central Mexico centuries ago. Havens adds another historical touch on the thumb with an Eye of Horus, the ancient Egyptian symbol of power and good health.
