Happy Monday! I had no idea what I was going to do this week for my manicure. I only knew I intended to use black and nude polishes. I kinda winged it this week and the result was polka dots & stripes nail art.
I will admit nail art isn’t my specialty but I try. I can work miracles with a mani and pedi but I am still working on my nail art skills. LOL! I used to envy the other girls I went to nail school with but hey, you have to work with your skills and talents.
I changed the pattern a bit after I finished my nails. I had stripes on my pinky nail but changed my mind. I was having a Libra moment. LOL!
The base color is Black Lace Creme by NYC. The bottle says long-wearing but I was skeptical. Let me tell you, this polish surprised the heck out of me. It survived not only a wash day but for me texlaxing, shampooing, and the entire process. I had a couple of small chips but nothing major and not at all what I expected to see. I thought for sure the relaxer would’ve taken off most of the color. I am now a fan!
I used Julep’s Sally to create the polka dots & stripes and I love the contrast in color. I will have to try this color alone because this was my first time using this polish. I know…I know I have a few polishes that have been hanging around with no use and most are Julep polishes.
Anywho, I will have to try this design again to perfect the look but for the first time, I am happy with the results.
Until next week, stay beautiful!
What manicure are you rocking this week?
