Challenge Accepted - Sheer Black Lace Nails
Some time ago, a participant in a Facebook group posted this picture by CelineDoesNails, and asked if anyone in our group would be willing to try and replicate it.
I accepted the challenge. This is my attempt. I had to make a sheer black polish first, so I added a few drops of Wet 'n Wild Black Creme to Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Flawless, a clear polish.
Then, I took my black striper and also a dotting tool and tried my best to exactly replicate the patterns of the original art!
Then, I ever so delicately added a small black border to each nail.
A no-bottle grip feels weird. Does it look weird to you?
Bottle shot: Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Flawless, Wet 'n Wild Black Creme, a bottle with the mixture of the clear and black, and the two black stripers I used.
Ok, so *technically* this month's theme is black and white, not black and less black. But I had to share. The sheer black is pretty cool!
