Black And White Challenge – Day 5: Color Base With Black (Plus A Layering Experiment!)
I’m really excited about my Black and White Challenge Day 5 nails (Color Base With Black). I was already wearing the lovely combination of SinfulColors Cinderella and Wet n Wild I Need A Refresh-Mint and I wasn’t quite ready to take it off yet. Then I remembered the beautiful ‘Flight of the Bumblebee’ manicure that The Daily Nail created, and knew what I wanted to do for today!
Let’s move right into the pictures guys!
Black And White Challenge – Day 5: Color Base With Black
I flippin’ LOVE how this manicure turned out you all! It was such a fun and cute way to incorporate black into my manicure for today’s challenge.
I used LA Colors Art Deco nail art polishes in Black, Yellow, and White. I put a large drop of each color that I wanted to used on a scrap of wax paper and then I used small nail art brushes to paint the lines and the bumblebee. And the layering of Cinderella and I Need A Refresh-Mint is such a perfect background for this!
Here’s a close-up of the bumblebee, it’s so cute!
In reality I am absolutely batshit TERRIFIED of bees, wasps, hornets, anything-that-may-fly-and-sound-like-a-buzzing-bee, etc. I will run screaming in all of the above scenarios. But the one on my thumb is fine in my books.
Layering: Wet n Wild I Need A Refresh-Mint + Sinful Colors Cinderella
And here’s my original layering and the base for Mr. Bee. I used 1 coat of Wet n Wild’s I Need A Refresh-Mint (a blue-tinged mint green creme and a near identical dupe for ChG For Audrey!) and 1 coat of SinfulColors Cinderella (a sheer baby blue with pink glass flecks). Oh-so-lovely, and I don’t wanna take it off. *le swoon*
And here’s a close-up for you all. I absolutely LOVE the pink shimmer in Cinderella. Actually both colors are fabulous, I’ll need to showcase them on their own some day.
I hope you all enjoyed my Day 5 nails for the challenge!
