Black and White Challenge: Day 3 Technicolour Sound Waves


Good Morning loves!


This is the third post in the Black and White Challenge. So far day 1 and 2 have been incredible and rumour has it that today is going to be even better :) 


Today's challenge is a black base with some colour. When I first heard this day I got something stuck in my head about music and sound waves. I just went with that thought and this is what I came up with!

My thumb is supposed to represent a speaker with music coming out of it and the rest of my nails are supposed to be the sound waves from the music. My friends thought it looked like something Daft Punk might sing, something very technicolour.

I started with 2 coats of Sephora by OPI's Never Enough Shoes, which is a black with multi coloured micro shimmer glitter throughout. Then I took a striper brush and created some sound waves with Essie's Marshmallow. I wanted the waves to have more dimension. Then I grabbed a rainbow of colours, which I will list below, and went at it with my striper brush creating the technicolour waves of sound.

To get the speaker on my thumb I took China Glaze's Stone Cold and covered half my nail with that. Then created a square inside that with Wet n Wild's Black Creme. Then went back with my dotting tool in Stone Cold to add the dots in the speaker. Then I used a white striper to  create the music notes.

Polish used:
China Glaze For Audrey
Stripe Rite Blue
Essie Jamaica Me Crazy
Stripe Rite Pink
Stripe Rite Red
Essence Glamorous Life
Essence Wake Up!
Orly Emberstone
Essence Wanna Be Your Sunshine
Stripe Rite Green
Sally Hansen Ivy League 

That is the order that I used the polish from my index to my pinky to create the rainbow sound waves. 
I really liked the final look of this and actually my brothers girlfriend came over yesterday and asked if I could do the same thing on her! So I did :) 

I'm really digging these technicolour sound waves, what do you think of them?
