Day 26: Inspired by a Pattern

Today's nail challenge: Inspired by a pattern. I found a lovely patterned wedding cake on Pinterest, and just fell in love with it, so I wanted to try and recreate it. I'm also always a sucker for black and white patterns.

As for my inspiration photo, here's the cake:

I think it's so pretty! I couldn't decide between doing white with black on top, black with white on top, just doing one accent nail differently, etc... so I just did them all the same, but I like how it turned out! I suppose putting the white over the black would have been more difficult though.

As for my colors, I used:
  • Ulta - Snow White
  • Cherimoya - Black
  • Seche Vite fast dry top coat

Simple, but I still love it! Sometimes less is more, I suppose. After all, I do have a tendency to overdo things!

All in all, another success for me! I really like this pattern, and may have to try it again, perhaps actually inverting it, or at least inverting the accent nail. 


  1. OH! I love this!! (also a complete sucker for b&w) You've made me think I should play around with some black and white patterns.

    1. Haha, if you haven't already, just go nuts with a "black & white" board on Pinterest or something!

    2. Great idea. It would go well with my COLOR board :)


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