40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Black & White

Friday 6 November 2015

Good afternoon loves.

It's Friday and I'm at home recovering from the heart op' I had on Wednesday which you can read about HERE. This means no fun or fireworks for me this weekend - Boohoo! Fortunately I can still do this from my sick bed so here is this weeks installment of the '40 Great Nail Art Ideas' challenge. The theme this week is black & white and my personal pattern is 'Chevrons' which I paired with negative space for an eye catching result.

This was super simple and even quicker to do which surprised me. I placed two chevron (zig-zag) vinyls from She Sells Sea Shells on each nail and pressed down firmly at the edges. I added the black & white with Barry M White and Avon Licorice then finished with Bazza topcoat.

I wasn't sure I'd like the bit of white free edge peeping through but actually I think it really adds to the negative space look which I just love, there's something about leaving a bit of the natural nail on show that can make a bold mani like this delicate somehow.

Now it's time for me to get back to resting in bed before I get too sore and stiff. Don't forget to see what the other tarts have been up to this week below...
