I kind of liked today's challenge because it forced me to do something I would normally never try. Black and white is sort of out of my comfort zone and just not something I would really think to do, as I always have some kind of color in my manicure but I ended up really liking this. I tend to really like loud, in your face manicures but this was kind of low key and elegant.
My base color is Sinful Color's Tokyo Pearl, which is a beautiful frosty white. I used three thin coats because I often have trouble with Sinful Colors polishes taking forever to dry. This one was a breeze to use and I had no issues at all. On a sidenote, I did not use the topcoat pictured, I just grabbed it for the sake of photos. I actually used NYC Grand Central Station as a topcoat. It doesn't smear like the topcoat pictured does.
I stamped over it using Wet N Wild Wild Shine in Black Creme and Shany Image Plate SH22. The design is just some random geometric triangles. I really like the design but I had some trouble with some of the triangles not completely transferring, as you can see above. I don't think it's that noticeable if you aren't zoomed in so close. Even though it isn't perfect, I still liked it.
The only problem with using black to stamp is that clean up can be a pain. As you can see below, the polish gets everywhere and it can be hard to get off the cuticle area. But again, at normal distance, it's not really noticeable.
