I decided to try and go out with a bang for the final day of this challenge. So I did something I have never done before — freehand nail art. And to make it even more complicated as I don’t own any nail art brushes, I used a toothpick. :p
Here’s my entry for Day 1o - Black and White.
I painted my nails with two coats of China Glaze’s Pelican Gray — a light gray with a hidden shimmer and then went to town using little wooden toothpicks. I used Alix Avien No 60 — a white creme — and Nubar’s Stronghold – a dark gray creme — for the roses. And then a toothpick dipped into China Glaze’s Liquid Leather – a black creme — for the leaves.
This was my first time trying roses as well, so I hope they’re recognisable as ones even despite the grayscale colour scheme. I’m really excited to try them with colours this spring as well as they weren’t nearly as difficult as I expected.
This was an awesome challenge to participate in and I’m happy I did. Time to bid adieu though and move back to colours for the coming spring/summer.
