It's the last day of Digit-al Dozen week with the challenge of black! I did something totally black; however, this is a fail to me on many levels but I wanted to try to stay true to the theme at least for one mani! Here's what I came up with!
Started with a base of two coats of Sally Hansen Big Smoky Topcoat; this is three coats. A couple comments; I think it applies way nicer with no base. I had applied my regular Duri Rejuvenate and even though lots of time had passed for it to dry, the top coat still applied patchy. Also, three coats is probably too many for good contrast with the stamping; I did two on Ms. Cindy (aka my test hand) and the contrast is better its just I can't stand VNL on me so did three in an attempt to cover it. And the attempt still failed as you can see below....
Stamped using FunkyFingers Dark Knight using an image from Chez Feerique 002.
Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.
I really wasn't feeling this too much, so decided to add a coat of OPI Matte. It was 'OK' but still not my favourite by any means.
When all else fails, add dots! Still not a great fan of how they turned out but the dots made them wearable at least! I think I may have liked these better with a black french tip too; just something about VNL on me that I'm not a fan of!
Here's the other ladies day 5 nails!
Thanks for looking!
