Black and White Challenge Day 5


This is my fifth post for the Black and White Nail Challenge. The theme for today's nails was to create a manicure using a color base with something black. After all the detailed designs, I wanted something simple and neat and this design fits perfectly. 

For this, I applied 2 coats of Zoya Jules. Then using the Konad image plate 209 I stamped the design on all the fingers using Wet N Wild Black Cream. This design looks really weird on the image plate and I assumed I was never going to use it as the size of all the nail are different and this whole design won't make any sense. However using only one side of the design works and if you can align it perfectly it will look really nice. I was in hurry so my lines are going everywhere. 

 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: Zoya Jules (2 coats)
Stamping Polish: Wet N Wild Black Cream
Stamping Plate: Konad M25
Top Coat: Seche Vite

I will appreciate any suggestions or comments.

Thanks for looking.


  1. Love it! Simple yet beautiful and classy.

  2. I love it! Normally, I shy away from nail art, worried that I'm too old for it. But that look, that is so classy and sophisticated!

  3. Wow, sweetie, your nail art is really lovely! <3
