I came back and I thought the the inLinks for the group I a part of would have ended, but luck had it that it is still open, which means I get to share with you a lot of other ladies that have done monochromatic nails in the last two weeks. At the bottom of the page they'll be lots of links to other designs so be sure to check them out if monochrome is your thing!
My nails would have been a nice matte and shiny design, I may show it if I can find a good picture but as I did my second hand the stamp wasn't coming out properly and I could suss out why, so that quest was abandoned very soon after the problem started. This week however, I've come armed with black, white and a simple design.
So this design is pretty simple a black base colour, I used two coats of MUA black that I bought for either £1.99 or 99p at Superdrug.
And then a white heart, I used BarryM Cotton to do this design. Two bigs dots with a dotting tool, each splitting centre.
Then I used an angled stripping brush to create a v shape from the outer points of the dots, this was then filled in using the same brush.
So there's the design, white hearts on black. However, this is not the end of the story...
Remember that gift I told you about?
|I managed to rip it slightly getting the security tag off|
I found in TkMaxx Ciate's Mini Mani Month. I think the one I got was last years design, but I do not mind one bit. TkMaxx were selling them for £20, stating they should have been £50. I also managed to find one that was even more discounted, because I'm a poor student, that was only £15. I got it home taped up the box edges that were the bit slightly damaged and good as new again.
Each day in December, up until the 25th, I'll get a mini Ciate polish by my calculations that's just less than 63p for each polish. Bargain. I'm pretty excited. So each day I'll get the polish and hopefully I'll be able to test it out by filling in each heart that colour. Some I won't be able to test there and then, there's a basecoat and a speed dry top coat in there somewhere. But I'm going to try and test as many as I can.
I will try to post a picture each day to show which polish I got on my instagram account (@naildesignbyrhiannon) at the end I will also do a collection post to show all the polishes and decide whether I'll be buying one next year.
My nail design will also grow with each new polish so I'm definitely excited. Next week I may need to think of a design with the same 'add-ability' so I don't miss out.
