Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida Black and White Linkup!
I have a special place in my heart for black & white manicures. There's something so clean and striking about them. So when the Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida suggested a Black & White roundup, I was excited.
I started with a new-to-me Indie, Glitzkrieg War Paint. This off-white/dove grey with a subtle holo is called Purity.
I used Cult Nails Ignite to freehand a chevron tip. This is an interestingly textured polish - the black is very jelly, but is opaque in two coats. It really allows the tiny silver sparkles to shine through!
Removal wasn't hard, either. The black polish comes off first, leaving a smattering of silver, but they just wiped off with a little pressure and a felt pad. No scrubbing required.
A white striper helped clean up the lines and give a little contrast, and then a textured square silver stud finishes the look!
All the points actually help visually elongate my nubbins. Science!

I love wearing black and white nails and outfits, and want to experiment with black and white makeup looks, too. How do you like your black and white?
