Black and White Challenge Day 7


This is my seventh post for the Black and White Nail Challenge. The theme for today's nails was to create a manicure using black, white, and glitters. I am still not feeling well but much better than yesterday. Yesterday, I was so miserable that I went to doctor first thing in the morning and I can see a little improvement. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

For this, I applied 2 coats of Essie Blanc. Then waited for it to completely dry and placed a scotch tape covering one-third of the nail at the bottom and applied Zoya Trixie. I removed the  scotch tape when the polish was still wet as it doesn't give thick edges. After Trixie dried, I again applied a scott tape covering the two-thirds of the nail at the bottom and applied Wet N Wild Black Cream and removed the tape when the paint was still wet. It is very important to have nail polish completely dry before you apply scott tape otherwise the polish will stick to the tape when you will try to remove it and will ruin your manicure.

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 Trixie, Wet N Wild Black Cream, and Essie Blanc

Others: Scotch Tape and Scissors

I will appreciate any suggestions or comments.

  7. Is Essie Blanc your favorite white polish? I am having a hard time finding a good white polish. Either they are too thin or they are too thick and gloopy and don't dry. Pretty mani!
