The Digit-al Dozen Does Art: Black and White Squares

Good Morning my loves!

Today is the LAST day in The Digit-al Dozen Art week and I have to say I am rather happy this week has come to a close. It has been a challenge to come up with some cool inspiration pieces, but challenges should be challenging! I struggled hard last night trying to come up with something and even completed a mani and then took it right off and looked for new inspiration. I eventually found some really interesting black and white squares which translated beautifully into skittles.

Here is my inspiration image that I found on Google.

I am quite fond of this type of work. I have even seen this kind of thing done where small pizza boxes were covered and then placed on the wall. Art for a university budget. I can see something like this in my house someday, I love mixing and matching prints as you can probably all tell from my love of skittles.

I did all these nails using Wet n Wild Black Creme and Milani White On The Spot. I used dotting tools, my mid-length striping brush and my cut down little brush to do all the work. On my right hand ring nail I stamped with Born Pretty store black stamping polish and BM-314 I believe.

You guys will be proud of me, I even managed to do my right hand AND get a semi decent picture of it! Check it ouuuttttttt

Still have an awkward hand pose, but my right hand never gets quite enough action on here to learn how to properly pose. How about a cool both hands picture?!

What do you think of my black and white skittles? Would you ever put up art like this in your house?

Make sure you check out the rest of the Digit-al Dozen! They have been kicking it up all week and I can't wait to see what they came up with today!


  1. This is gorgeous. Black and white is always such a striking combination

  2. Love it! You found the perfect skittle inspiration. My favorite nail is the left ring finger. I may have to give that pattern a shot sometime!

  3. What an awesome skittle!! I love seeing both of your hands together!

    1. thank you! I'll have to show both of them together more often!

  4. love these! i don't do b&w nails enough, they look so cool and graphic!
