Black & White Challenge - Day One

Hey everyone! This is a quick post today. I just wanted to share my first nail design I did for day one of the black and white challenge.

Day One: White Base with Black

Sinful Colors-Snow Me White
Icing - Jet Black
Bundle Monster Plate BM16

I must say I am disapointed with how this manicure turned out. I do not like using white polishes. This one was somewhat thick and bubbled a ton on me. I find that this tends to be a common issue with white and yellows. They are either too thick or too thin. I also am not a fan of my top coat (China Glaze Fast Foward) streaked some of my stamping. I may not have waited long enough for it to completely dry and that my be my fault and not the top coat. I feel like if this was not as messy, or didn't chip the same day, I may have liked it more. What do you think?


  1. From a distance you can't even tell! I think it looks good ;) I hate SC white.. it's the worst white varnish I have in my collection. The only reason why I haven't thrown it away is bc I like to use it for frankens. I now have two "high end" whites in my stash (Essie and Zoya) and they both suck too.. just not has bad.

    1. I am glad it looks good from far away! I just hate most whites and yellow. They are so difficult to work with!
