#31DC2013 Day 7: Black & White and a whole lot of temptation!

7 Sep

Aaah, Black&White day! I’ve been looking forward to this one!
But then, with crispy white (albeit slightly bubbly) nails ready for action, I looked up at my very messy desk. There they were, calling my name, winking for my attention… all these lovely colors and tiny rhinestones that were just aching to work with those all-whites!
Must…resist…temptation!

I did a dotted circle pattern a couple of weeks ago on a nail wheel, turns out it works well with black, white and a dab of silver too!

To keep the surface as free from bubbles as possible, I used a matte topcoat over the plain white base. My matte (HEMA, a local Dutch chain I absolutely LOVE) gives a very smooth finish, ideal to cover any imperfections!
Then I applied 2 thin coats of pearl shine white, before dotting away with charcoal and silver.

The end result:

    Cute – love to see it up a little closer in your shot if you can get your camera to do that!

    I’ll add them to the bottom of the post as I’m not sure I can add a pic in the comments… Pictures made with the Samsung Galaxy SIII, I do have one of those more-settings-than-I-can-imagine big camera’s, if you like further close ups I’ll bring out the big one 😉
