Nailart | #31DC2015 day 7, Black & White

No comments


Hey guys! Today for the 31 days of color challenge I have some black and white french tips with a little bit of freehand. Am I crazy or do my center nails look a little like the Eiffel Tower? It was totally unintentional but I am going with it lol!

I began with two coats of Stephanie, a super sheer light pink that Zoya very quietly discontinued! Next I topcoated with Flash Dry by Bohemian Polish and allowed it to completely dry, so around 10-15 minutes.


I then went in with some hole reinforcements and applied to the ends of my nail as a guide for french tips. I painted over these with Zoya Purity and removed the stickers before the polish had a chance to dry. I didn’t get perfectly clean lines and you can go in with acetone and a cleanup brush and clean them up a bit. I’ll be freehanding over mine so it isn’t that big a deal.


Next I went in with black acrylic paint and a small detail brush and free handed some swirls on both my middle and ring fingernails. I topcoated with flash dry one more and then applied some small rhinestones with my rhinestone picker tool from before the topcoat had a chance to dry. This was the finished result:




So that’s it for today, thank you so much for reading along and stay tuned for day 8 tomorrow!
