Day 07: Black and White Nails

It's been a whole week with this challenge already! Today's theme is black and white, and I've been looking forward to it! I didn't really know what to do for today's nails, so I winged it, and finally got to try Valentino from Pretty and Polished!

I'm so happy with these! I know that yesterday's violet nails were my favorite from this challenge so far, but these take the cake. I can never get enough black and white.

I'm never really happy with how my nails look with just painted tips, although I'm ok with "naked" nails. My nail beds are uneven from nail to nail after being a nail biter for the better part of my grade school years, so it just looks weird to me. Because of that, I painted my nails with a neutral / nude tone, and then did the tips.

Colors used:
  • Essie - Sand Tropez
  • Pure Ice - Black Rage
  • Max Makeup Cherimoya nail art polish in White
  • Pretty and Polished - Valentino

All in all, I am so happy with how today's nails came out. I really have to keep this style in mind for future use! 


  1. I love these! You did a great job.

    1. Thank you :D I'm loving it! Too bad I'll have to do something more boring for an expo presentation downtown tomorrow haha. At least the theme for tomorrow is metallic, so I can do a nice silver :)

  2. Amazing! The double french and the glitter makes an awesome mani!! :)

    1. Thank you! I've been freehanding French tips for a little while now, and I love how they come out every time! I don't know why I didn't do this years sooner haha


I would love to hear your feedback!
I read every single comment :)
