Oh hello lovelies! Look who is just barely squeezing their post in before midnight…again…meh. My blogging schedule is weird this week, because I didn’t get to do any prep last weekend. So, you guys will have to bear with me over the next couple of days while I play catch up. This weekend is a three day one, and I plan on getting my blogging (
and life) back together. Anyways. It’s Thursday which means I have my fourth black manicure to share with you guys for the Digit-al Dozen!
Here is what I used:
Yeah, my whole plan of sticking to manicures with a black base for this week was abandoned haha. In my defense, there is a little army of new polishes sitting on my desk and they are all begging to get used. Fair Maiden Polish caught my eye this time, so that’s what I used! Seriously, though. Look at those flakies! The nail art over top was inspired by this print that was created by Sharon Cummings.
- Start by applying three coats of Hemera.
- Once the base is dry, use black acrylic paint and a detail brush to add on the pattern.
- Clean up.
- Then finish with a coat of Tonic Topper.
So, what do you guys think? I really liked wearing these! But, I’m bummed about how much of the base polish got covered. Hemera is a delicate polish with a stunning purple shimmer that got lost behind the black nail art. If I ever recreate this design, I’ll have to try harder to make the line work a little bit thinner. But, let me know what you think!
Thank you guys so much for reading! I’ll see you guys back here tomorrow for more nail art, but in the meantime take a minute to visit the other ladies down below!
