Hey guys! Happy Friday! I hope your week has been going well. I’m simply happy mine is almost over. Today is the Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida’s monthly linkup! I completely lucked out on this. This month’s theme is black and white, and I already had a black and white (and red/pink) mani set up to post next! Totally lucked out. So, here goes!
For this look, I used OPI Black Onyz, Alpine Snow, and Zoya Arabella for the pop of color. I started this design with the checkered nail in mind, and as soon as I did one nail, I knew I wasn’t going to continue it onto the rest of my nails.
The taping took a decently long time. I knew it was going to be time consuming; I did not anticipate the frustration of so many pieces of tape. It became slightly overwhemling and tedious, but the end result was worth it.
After finishing the tape, I decided to go with a textured outline around the nails to add something onto them. I grabbed a nail brush and carefully painted an outline. It took a little to get the polish opaque, but that allowed the texture to build up. It was a nice result.
So, what do you think? Make sure you check out the rest of the posts! These lovely ladies have some amazing ideas!
