Day 7 of the 30 Day Challenge: Black and white nails

I’m back again with today’s installment of the 30 Day Challenge and today’s theme is ‘black and white nails’.

These two plain colours (or absences of colour) tend to be a popular nail polish combination for me. I love the classy smart effect you can get with them and often trade the white in for a silver.

Today however, I decided to go with something a bit more fun!

Black and white nails – in the shade

Piano nails! How cute are these? I think this was probably the easiest stamping experience I’ve had so far (not that it’s hard!) and was a real joy to do.

I started by painting my nails with Barry M Matt White and after it had dried, I used Bundle Monster Plate 207 and Konad Special Polish in Black to stamp the piano pattern over it.

I’m really looking forward to seeing what the others doing this challenge can offer today as I might have to pinch some black and white ideas!

For this manicure I used:
  • Sally Hansen – Maximum Growth
  • Barry M – Matt White
  • Konad Special Polish – Black
  • Bundle Monster Plate 207
  • Sally Hansen – Insta-Dri
