Black and White Challenge Day 3


This is my third post for the Black and White Nail Challenge. The theme for today's nails was to create a manicure using a black base with some color. I have been thinking about making roses on my nails for a while now and this seemed like a perfect opportunity. These roses are super easy to make. I learned it from this video.

For this, I applied two coats of Wet N Wild Black Cream. Then using Zoya Sooki and Essie Blanc I made the roses using an orange wood stick. After it dried, I drew leaves using a green acrylic paint. After everything dried, I applied China Glaze Matter top coat. It looked kinda dull so I applied L.A. Colors green glitter on the leaves and little silver glitter on the roses. The roses had some texture so I went a step further and applied top coat on just the roses and leaves. I really liked how it turned out. 

The products I used. You can also check the items used list at the bottom of the page.

Items used: 
Base Coat: Seche Clear
Polish: Wet N Wild Black Cream (2 coats)
Polish used for Nail Art: Zoya Sooki, Essie Black, L.A. Colors Green and Silver Glitter.
Top Coat: Seche Vite and China Glaze Matte Top Coat
Others: Black and Green Acrylic Paint, Orange wood stick, and Brushes

I will appreciate any suggestions or comments.
