Challenge Week 14: Black and White :)

Can you believe it's week 14 already? Anyway, this weeks 52 Week Challenge theme is Black and White- another one I've been quite looking forward to, but when it came to actually painting my nails I got a bit stuck for inspiration. I'd originally planned on using my piano key stamp to do a musical mani, but I just wasn't feeling it. I painted my nails white (and a black accent nail) and left them to dry whilst searching for inspiration...




And as I fiddled with my camera I remembered the black and white setting- and how much I love black and white photography (I actually did a City and Guilds when I was at 6th form college) and I became inspired :)




I added lots of little dots in the corners of my nails, I'm not describing it well... just look at some pictures (all taken in black and white- I love it and it fits nicely with the theme) I'm quite pleased at how straight the lines turned out, I free handed them and I'm rubbish at straight lines! :)







I also took a colour one, just for funsies...




And in case you hadn't guessed (because they are the only white and black that I own...) I used Models Own Snow White and e.l.f. Black, as well as a small dotting tool- nice and simple this week :)




Next week is Inspired by a Song- I'd better get my thinking cap on! :)

  3. Thank you all- I'm glad you like it :)

    @Nailspark I agree- it's tempting to go all out every time and sometimes it's nice to keep it simple :) Can't wait to see it (is it on reddit yet?- running off to look!)
