Black and White Challenge: Day 8

Morning!


This is the eighth day in our challenge, can you believe we're almost done?! It has been so much fun getting to know these wonderful ladies and seeing what they have come up with!  


Today's challenge is sponging with black and white. Do you ever sit down to do a mani and it is kind of born out of nothing? That is what happened here. Friday night there was a package notice on our door and when I picked it up yesterday my striping tape was finally here! I wanted to use is in some way.

I started off by painting my nails with 2 coats of Sally Hansen's Celeb City which is my all time favourite  silver foil. I let this dry and then started placing striping tape in various patterns on my nails. Then I grabbed a makeup sponge and sponged on a layer of Wet n Wild's Black Creme, then sponged on China Glaze White on White, then went back to Black Creme and sponged on random areas and finished off with a few more random placements of White on White. Finally I took off the striping tape and added a coat of NYC top coat!

I loved this! I reminded me of granite. I kept looking at it and wondered how it would look mattified. So I grabbed Essie's Matte About You and went to work!

I love this even more matte! It looks really cool in real life and I got a few compliments on it already :)
