Digit-al Dozen Does Black; Day 4

If you've been checking out the Digit-al Dozen posts (and hopefully you have been!), you will have seen some pretty amazing mani's using black!  I think I've used more colour in my mani's than most and have been super surprised with what they have come up with using mainly just black.  Yes, there has been some colour added here and there but there has also been some great mani's using just black or shades of black or mainly black.  Kudos to all the ladies!  I did these nails Monday night and tried to use just black...and still couldn't do it!  But no bright colours anyway; here's what I came up with!

Started with a base of two coats of OPI Black Onyx, no top coat.  This actually isn't what I had intended; I wanted to do a grey accent nail and then have black stamping on top of it to change it up a little but I was concentrating so hard on applying the black to avoid cleanup and flooding that I painted my accent nail before I knew it!  Well, that and singing along to some awesome music at the time but I got distracted!  I just decided to go with it anyway!  But it kinda ticked me off because I took so long searching my stash for the perfectly matching polish to match the stamping polish!

Topped with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Stamped using MdU 34 using an image from Marianne Nails n.100.  Roses because, hey, it's Valentine's week even if we have a theme of black!

 Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.

 I did my test hand the right way...or at least what I had planned out anyway so decided to polish over the accent nail anyway using Barry M Grey, then stamped using same image using FunkyFingers Dark Knight, then topped with top coat.  I think the little change up just gives it a little added interest...for a many that is pretty boring otherwise lol!  And see, the base polish matches the stamping polish so well which is what I had planned!  I love when this happens!

 Here's the other ladies Day 4 mani's!
