Black and White Challenge

Some of you will know that I ventured over to Adventures in Stamping, thanks to an invite from a fellow Canadian gal! So thank you Marcia! This weeks challenge was Black and White...perhaps if you already follow fellow blogging gals who are part of the group, you'll have noticed the amazing, sophisticated black and white mani's they've been posting today. Mine wasn't one of those sophisticated ones, that's for sure! lol!

A cow mani was the first thing I thought of when I thought of black and white. Started with a base of two coats of OPI Bride's Bouquet.

Stamped using Konad black special polish. (I've had a couple disappointments with KC black with a stamping not being dark enough, so alas, back to Konad. I haven't given up on KC, but for the time being, I'm back to using Konad again.) Image plates used were XXL Big SdP-1 (index), SdP 44 (ring) and fauxnad F2 (rest of fingers and thumb).

Added a french tip using fauxnad F2 on the index finger and then did freehand printing under cow head on ring finger.

Topped with SV.

I was really astonished at the creativity that everyone came up with by using two simple, basic colours, black and white.

Hope you had a great weekend! Thanks for looking!


  1. It looks so cute! You are very creative :)

  2. I love it! So cute. Black and white can sometimes have such impact in its simplicity. Also, the cow on your ring finger looks so much like the cow from The Laughing Cow cheese wheels that it's making me hungry!

  3. Sooooo cute, I love cows! Perfect!

  4. This is adorable! Perfect twist on your standard black and white manicure! Love it =)

  5. Super fun! I might have to try and copy this for my next trip to Wisconsin, the Dairy State, where I passed so very many cows in this color scheme. :)
