I’ll be honest, I wasn’t looking forward to the black and white day of this challenge.
I started trying to figure out what I was going to do a couple days in advance. I wanted to try something different. Tuxedo nails? Nail stamping? What the heck was I going to do! Thank god for pinterest, huh? I could get lost on there for hours looking at nail art ideas (and quite frequently do). Once again, my inspiration came from a pin on there: these geometric square nails.
The polishes I used were:
- OPI’s My Boyfriend Scales Walls — White Base.
- ACO by Ardene’s Tuxedo — Black base.
- Stripe Rite Striping Brush in black.
- Stripe Rite Striping Brush in White.
- Sally Hansen diamond Flash top coat.
Obviously you can see, mine turned out a little different from my inspiration. I didn’t really figure out I shouldn’t cram as many squares until I got to my black nails (I did the white base first). Even though they’re not perfect, they look different and made me not dread the black and white prompt quite so much. Even though I used to wear black nail polish frequently, I don’t as much any more. With the exception of Halloween, I can’t actually remember the last time I wore it as a full mani.
What do you think about these geometric nails? Which look do you prefer–lots of squares, or only a few?
