#31DC2015 007 // Black & White Nails
1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats SinfulColors Snow Me White
SinfulColors Black on Black
1 Coat Sally Hansen Ruffle
1 Coat Sally Hansen Eyelet
1 Coat SinfulColors Queen of Beauty
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite
Initially, I had a lot of different ideas for my BLACK & WHITE nails. Stripes, stamping, gradient, sponging... but in the end, I went with a Seriotype.
This manicure began with three easy coats of Snow Me White. That was followed by random swipes of Black on Black, which I dabbed with saran wrap. I topped that with Ruffle, a black matte glitter, followed by Eyelet, a white matte glitter. It needed a little sparkle, but I wanted to keep the pallet neutral, so I just added small silver glitter a la Queen of Beauty. One coat of clear and a coat of Seche Vite finished everything off, and I was good to crash! (And crash I did!)
This is one of those manicures that looked better in my mind than on my nails. I was a combination of tired and a little sick when I painted this, but I can't really blame it on cold medicine or anything. It just didn't turn out the way I had hoped. It's also a good example of nails that looked better in real life than how they turned out in the photos. Which happens! Definitely not that big of a deal. On to the next one... isn't that what they say?!?
