Twinsie Tuesday - Black & White Mani

Good morning, friends! I'm back today with another Twinsie Tuesday post. This weeks challenge was a black and white manicure. Seems simple enough, but I spent the better part of the week trying to figure out what to do. I started with three awful coats of Essie Marshmallow and after major denting and chippage had to start over. I decided to keep it simple, and I really ended up loving the outcome.

I'm not sure what to call this, other than random freestyle nail art. I wasn't going to a zebra look, I just wanted lines coming from each side of the nail. I started with two coats of Jordana White (much easier than Essie Marshmallow!) and just went and did a couple of random black stripes with a nail art polish. I'm pretty proud, especially for this being nail art lol.  

Sorry for the dry cuticles. The weather in NY has been pretty cold (with the exception of today, where we hit 62 degrees) and the winter weather wrecks havoc on my skin despite slathering on lotion all day long.

Make sure to check out my twinsies and their black and white manicures:

  1. Absolutely perfect! You can never go wrong with animal print, IMO :)

  2. So nice and neat Katherine. I like!

  3. This looks very nice! I haven't tried freehand zebra yet.

  4. Katherine, these look great--I actually think it's a bit tiger! And heh, I know what you mean about Marshmallow. The results can be really pretty if your bottle is having a good day, but it's so temperamental sometimes. >_<

  5. Ohhhh I LOVE this!! You did an amazing job, very impressed!!

  6. Looks like white tiger to me. I love it!
