Black and White Challenge Day 8


This is my eighth post for the Black and White Nail Challenge. The theme for today's nails was to create a manicure using Sponge. I apologize for uploading this tutorial late as I had the most busy day yesterday and came home very late and was too tired to work on a mani and upload it. 

For this, I applied 2 coats of Essie Blanc. After it dried I mixed a little Wet N WIld Black Cream with Essie Blanc to give it a very light grey shade and sponged it. I repeated this step again a couple of times every time increasing its intensity by adding a little more black polish. In the end I sponged the tips using the same black polish. It gives it a gradient look.

 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, and Essie Blanc
Top Coat: Seche Vite
Others: Sponge

I will appreciate any suggestions or comments.

Thanks for looking.
