I took a short break from the 31 Day Challenge to paint my nails for my school’s Homecoming dance. So I made these to match my dress, which is cream colored. But then Hoco was canceled because the state where I live called a state of emergency because of Hurricane Joaquin. So these are my not-Hoco nails now. Anyway, I used Sinful Colors Black on Black, and using a small brush, I painted on stripes of Zoya Ziv. This was not my idea or design. I have seen this design multiple times and decided to copy it.
I haven’t posted in about two weeks and here are two posts in one day! School has been keeping me super busy, posts will be a little scarcer. So here is Day 16. I used Sinful Colors Starry Night, three coats. Starry Night is a black jelly with some holo-ish glitter, gold little squares, and gold shreds. It does ent up textured though, so two coats of topcoat minimum are needed. I think this color is really cool, it isn’t totally black and it has some SPARKLE. So on the accent finger I used Zoya Ziv and Sinful Colors Black on Black, as well as some nail art tape to create the design.
I am not a huge fan of yellow. In fact, it is my least favorite color. So I used Zoya Tomoko, a white gold. This was relatively simple, just some dots using the end of a bobby pin. I used Sinful Colors Black on Black for the accent nail and dots. I also decided to use a topcoat. I decided to use only one coat, there is some texture but it is pretty subtle.
Then, I placed a piece of tape over half my nail. To avoid picking up some nail polish when you lift up the tape, press the tape on the back of your hand or your finger a few times to get rid of some of the stickiness.
