My Black and White nails, I couldn’t resist another skittle for this! 😀
The Polishes I used are,
- China Glaze White on White
- Elegant Touch French Manicure White
- Sally Hansen Pure Midnight
- Filthy Gorgeous Twilight
- L’Oreal Confettis
- Konad SP Black
My first step was to paint all my nails with two coats of White on White.
For my thumb I used Twilight and White on White. Starting with a simple french tip, (I used a guide) I added the first dots with a medium dotting tool, then with a thin brush I filled in the gaps, then added the second dots with a small sized dotting tool.
For my index finger over the White on White I used Konad Black with Suki 06 XL plate from Moyou.
On my middle finger I used French Manicure White, Pure Midnight and Twilight for the sponged gradient, it took three layers before it was ‘gradienty’ enough then I added the Confettis, I found the brush for the glitter topcoat was rather scratchy, I don’t know if it was bits of glitter in the brush or the brush itself, it scraped some of my gradient 😦
For the water marble I used French Manicure White and Twilight. Both of these polishes worked really well, they even spread over the water at the same rate! 😀
Finally for my little finger I used some more Twilight and a medium dotting tool!
Then when it was dry I applied my topcoat and had a cup of tea!

This looks fabulous! So last night when I was thinking of future manis (I swear that’s all I think about) I thought, I should do a black and white mani using a ton of different techniques like dotting, gradient, water marble, stamping, etc. Maybe I’ll just copy yours when I end up doing it. 😉
