The Crumpets challenge Day One Black and White Nails

I decided to start the year with a nail art challenge.  I miss doing nail art and like I said before I started the blog with intentions of doing nail art.  So our first challenge was a black and white mani.  I  have a special place in my heart for white mani's.  I think done right they are clean and sophisticated of clean and fun.  The mani I did is fun.  I did a different technique on each nail.  I used three colors in this mani.  China Glaze Elephant Walk, OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, and Wet and Wild Black.



The thumb is white with crackle polish.  The index is black with white polka dots.  The middle has a yin yang sign (so easy to do).  My ring finger I did a brush stroke nail that Kimber from Kimber's Lacquer Corner did in one of her Challenges. (http://www.kimberslacquerkorner.com/2012/11/31-day-challenge-v2-day-30-inspired-by.html).  Finally on the pinky I did a quilted nail.  It just took a little patience, but I loved doing it.

















So this is going to be my entry for the challenge.  I truly had fun doing this manicure.  The challenge will last 31 days.  Tomorrow's challenge is silver and my mind is already going in all kinds of creative directions.  I will be posting my favorites, favorite mainstream polishes, favorite indies and posts.

Ciao till later,
Patty
