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!
