Morning Everyone!!

I’m back with Day 4 of the Black and White Challenge, this time it’s a white base with color that the crew and I needed to achieve. I decided to try doing ‘Doodle Nails’. If you’re not familiar with them, check out MaD Manis post [HERE]. She also linked to several other great bloggers that created ‘Doodle Nails’ as well. ^_^


Black And White Challenge – Day 4: White Base With Color

Day 4: White Base With Color
I started out with 2 coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White On and a coat of Seche Vite. I absolutely LOVE this white! It’s opaque in two coats and is relatively streak free. πŸ˜€ I’ll have to try it out with stamping next time!

Then I took a tip from Amanda of MaD Manis and used Sharpie markers to add the ‘paper’ details and the doodles. I think it turned out pretty cute! My lines look a bitΒ shakyΒ but that’s because I was being impatient and trying to draw on still dentable polish. πŸ˜›

Also I did not add top coat. I tried adding it to my right thumb and it smeared all of the lines, so I had to scratch that idea.

Next time I do these though I think I’ll try using nail polish for the details. All of the black and red ink had completely faded off my nails several hours later. :-(

And just for kicks, here’s my right hand. Line work? NAILED IT. πŸ˜› I drew the little stick figure on my ring finger and gave up, lol. The rest of the doodles on this hand were drawn by my roommate, thanks Brenda! πŸ˜€
