Black & White Challenge - Day 3

Less than 5 minutes to spare before the day ends. The theme for today is a black base w/ color. Click to see day 1 or day 2.

I did my nails twice because I couldn't settle with the other one. Here is the second mani I did for this theme using stripes for my colors over a black base.

The base is Wet n Wild Black Creme & the stripes are LA Colors Art Deco in Quirky Turquoise & Metallic Pink. Finished off with a matte top coat.

Now this was the mani I first had in mind for the black base with color theme. I was inspired by World of Color in Disney's California Adventure Park. If you've seen it, you'll know how amazing that water show is! & If not, you can watch it on Youtube! Hehe. Anyways, the idea of World of Color didn't quite transfer onto my nails as I had imagined. It came out pretty cool though.

When I first tried this out on the nail wheel, I added hidden Mickeys!

I painted the colors with a brush & use Kleancolor Metallic in Pink, Fushia, Orange, Yellow, Green, Aqua, Sapphire, & Purple.

Once it was on my nails, I wanted to do a different design. Maybe I shouldn't have covered the entire nail & did it like the nail wheel.

What do you think, do you like the first mani I did or the second one with the stripes?

Dotting Flowers

I added some color to yesterday's b&w mani. You see why I wasn't satisfied with just white flowers, I knew I could do so much more to make it pop, lol. I did this mani last year also, where the colors are almost the same. I love how those flowers are easily achieved by just using a dotting tool. It's probably my favorite nail art to do. I'm about to enter this into Chalkboard Nails dotting tool nail art contest. Haha, talk about super last minute.

I used China Glaze Gaga For Green, Sunshine Pop, Aquadelic, & Gothic Lolita all from the Electropop collection to make an addition flower on each nail. Then topped it off with a matte top coat, Warpaint Beauty Mattify.

& Don't forget to join my giveaway if you haven't already, it ends in 10 days!

Black & White Challenge - Day 2

Here's the second mani to the black & white challenge - white on black. I'm very meh about this mani. I like it, but at the same time I don't. It needs color to come alive! Click to see day 1.

The base color is Wet n Wild Black Creme & I made the flowers using a dotting tool with Wet n Wild French White Creme.

Week 9: Vintage Mani

Hi hi! I'm cutting it close to the end of week 9 of the 52 weeks year challenge. The theme was "vintage" mani & I just didn't know what to do except to make my mani look like it's in sepia tone. Here is what I came up with. I recycled my previous splattered mani & added red roses with white acrylic paint & China Glaze Salsa. Then I made a brown tint mixing clear coat and China Glaze Street Chic to layer on top. The overall mani looked way more appealing mattified.

Some things looks nicer not completely focused & this mani was definitely one of them! Haha.

This mani also looks best when it's not too zoomed in.

Actually, these nails looks awesome an arm length away from my eyes. About this size!

Before the tinting. I need a little more practice making roses.

What do you think?

Black & White Challenge - Day 1

Hi guys! I'm joining in another nail challenge once again. It's a black & white challenge made by Purple Glitter & Colorfull Bottle, consisting of 10 mani's that you'll do every 3 days. Today's the first day. You can check out more info about this challenge here if you wish to join in!

Day 1- black on white

I decided to do splatter nails. You can't go wrong with that right? I used two coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme as the base color and splattered it with Wet n Wild Black Creme.
