There are certain prints that will never go out of style like leopard, stripes and floral, however, I've learned through trial and error that the key to keeping it modern is wearing them in unconventional ways. Mr. Candiipants blogger Candice caught whim of an ikat mani floating on Tumblr, but was utterly disappointed after discovering that the accompanying how-to was through applying nail stickers.
Much less labor-intensive than the actual weaving technique, she challenged herself to recreate this design with actual paint. Follow Candice's steps in the video below (tutorial starts at 1:30 mark).
