31DC2013: Day Seven - Black & White Nails

This is the first black and white look I've ever done - and I must say, I really liked it.
For this manicure, I used  Sally Hansen Hard As Nails White Tip and stamped with Konad Black and the image plate, Pueen 44.

After I did this manicure, I decided to experiment a little more and taped each nail off diagonally and painted it black. But I didn't like this second look as much. Maybe its just because the black I used here, Maybelline Onyx Rush, bubbled up a little or maybe it just needs a softer colour here. It also made me realise I need better black and white nail polishes! The two that I used here are quite thin and so were difficult to work with in this type of a tape manicure.

In the end, I decided that I liked the nails in the first photo better and so those are my official black and white nails for this challenge. What do you think?

    1. Thanks! You are doing very well with the Challenge!

  2. I agree! I see where you were going with the second one, though.

    1. Thanks. It might turn out better with softer colours - maybe the black and white were just too stark for that look! Will have to try it out sometime! :-)
