This is the fourth post in the Black and White Challenge. The first 3 days were awesome and I can't wait to see what the sexy6 have come up with today! Everyone is really blowing it out of the water!
Today's challenge is a white base with some colour. I have been using mostly cremes for this challenge so I decided to not let myself use them today! I started off with two coats of OPI's She's Golden, which is a white polish with a subtle gold shimmer. It is really pretty on it's own. I really wanted to do a colour blocking mani so I took, Cult Nail's Toxic Seaweed, The Hungry Asian's Sea Creature, Revlon's Mistletoe and my black striper and went to work.
I started out using my black striper to create the outline of the pattern that I wanted on each nail. Then I took Toxic Seaweed and a small nail art brush and filled in random sections. Then I did the same with Mistletoe and Sea Creature. Once I had filled in all the areas that I wanted I went back with my striper and redid the lines so they had more definition. Topped it off with a coat of SV and I was good to go!
I'm totally in love with this look! I love the colour blocking and I think all the glitter, shimmer and flakies make this extra special! My boyfriend told me that they reminded him of stained glass the way the flakies and glitter kept catching the light, so that's what I have named these!
I even managed to do this on my right hand! I didn't take a picture because well it's not quite as neat and I'm a perfectionist haha.
Again I'm totally in love with this look! The flakies in toxic seaweed keep catching the light and I just love it!
What do you think of my take on colour blocking, aka Stained Glass?
