I haven't done aztec nails for a while now and decided it was time again. But I wanted a more simple version than the usual aztec nails so I just added one color to a clean white base.
I started with two coats of Essie - Blanc. Amazing formula by the way, very unusual for a white nail polish. I'm really curious to see how the formula will be like in a few weeks or months. For the color accent I chose Essie - Too Too Hot and just added random bold stripes with the brush that came with the bottle.
So there's no way to do complete aztec nails without a little bit of effort, because they are kind of defined by their complex patterns. Nonetheless I tried to keep it as simple as possible and just added some lines, triangles and dots with black acrylic paint and a nail art brush.
Then I waited for the acrylic paint to be completely dry before I added one coat of Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat.
