An Emphatically Edgy Friday

Today I've got some pretty awesomely edgy nails to share with you. After the Black and White Challenge I tend to find my mind drifting towards some black and white designs. So after browsing through Pinterest for a few hours one night and consulting my nail notebook a few times I came up with this emphatically edgy design!

I started off my painting my thumb and pinky with Sephora by OPI Never Enough Shoes. This polish is a black jelly filled with silver and gold microglitter than is actually visible through the black! It is my favourite black I own and I only have a mini. Might need to invest in a larger bottle. On the other three nails I used China Glaze White on White as a base and then using my Stripe Rite Black striper and Wet n Wild Silvivor and a striping brush to create the rest of the nails. Then for my thumb and pinky I grabbed my microbeads in Silver and placed them around the edge of my nail on my pinky creating a frame, and in a line down my nail on my thumb.

Placing those microbeads was surprisingly easy! I thought I was going to be a complete pain, but in the end it really was rather easy to do. I just dipped a dotting tool in a bit of clear polish, picked up a bead and placed it on my nail. I'm finding more and more uses for my microbeads and am loving them.

When my boyfriend saw these he thought they were sexy! Imagine that! He said the studs were really different and all I needed was a leather jacket, some skinny jeans and a motorcycle. I laughed, but can completely see where he's coming from!


On another note the day after I had done these I had an impromptu interview, that was supposed to be the following week, and I couldn't bear to take these off yet! So I wore them with my suit and the male interviewers actually told me they liked them. Said even though it's a technical job they liked that I have some creativity. Imagine that! 


Oh guess what, my left hand even managed to do this on my right hand! 




I apologize for the claws, but living alone it's hard to get pictures of your hands looking nice together so I made do with this. 


What do you think of my edgy nails? Would you rock something like this? Especially to an interview? Or are you a little more conservative? Let me know! :D 


Hope you all have a very happy Friday!

  1. I love these. The pinky is my favorite! I'm proud of you for wearing them to an interview! If they don't like your nails or approve of nail art, you don't want to work for them anyways! :-p

    1. Thanks Emily! I'm not going to lie I was very nervous going in with them as they were pretty out there! But I'm really glad it all worked out. I felt odd in a suit and pointy heels with these nails LOL
