I'm back! Sorry it's been a few days since my last post - although I'd done these nails on Thursday, I went shopping on Friday and then visited my grandfather on Saturday so I'm only just getting around to posting them. The theme for day 7 of the 31 Day Challenge is black and white nails, which I struggled with for a bit before opting for a relatively simple stamping design.
I used my ring finger and thumb as accent nails, and stamped chevrons onto part of the nail before blocking the section off with striping tape. Here's the final result:
|Seems like I all I ever do in these captions is apologise for the shocking lighting - damn living in North Yorkshire!|
I was pleasantly surprised with how this design came out - the contrast between the base and the stamp showed up well and it was one of those designs that looked unbelievably cool from a distance. I didn't keep the design long, partly because the striping tape was peeling a bit, and partly because I got a couple of new polishes on my shopping trip the next day that I couldn't wait to try out!
The polishes I used in this design wereeeee:
- Laval - White
- Rimmel London 60 Seconds - Black Out
- Konad Special Nail Polish - Black, White (for the stamping)
- Stamped with Bundle Monster plate BM201
- Striping tape from Born Pretty Store
And now, to bid you a fond farewell, I present the Nail Platypus with a couple of the polishes I used:
Free hugs for all,
