Creative musings in bright colors

Black Circuitry

I admit defeat! I was wearing my Day 15 nails (which you will see next week :-p because I am doing this all out of order) and I whacked two of my nails against a cabinet in lab. Combined with the slight lifting that was left (they hadn’t grown out fully from when I swatched the last batch of Mentality polish) they almost got ripped off. So, now my nails on my right hand are super short. Which means I can’t show off anything really awesome today because they are too small to do much…also its a week night when I painted these.


Anyway, black and white nails! I just wanted something simple to throw on my poor tiny abused fingertips and came up with this. The black and silver base is Secret Admirer by Sinful Colors. I have NO IDEA when I last used this polish! It sits next to Storm by Zoya on my polish shelf, so I always grab the zoya…but this time I knew I wanted to matte the final product and I BOUGHT this polish so I could matte it back in 2012…so here we go!


The design is from Emily de Molly plate 11, stamped using White Opaque by Mentality. I still love the white-silver appearance of this polish and it does stamp great! I also intended to have the stamp look like it was moving up my nails from pinky to pointer and it…kind of worked? If you squint? You should squint 🙂


I was hoping to inspired others during this 31 Day Challenge, but this mani falls just a bit flat. Thats what I get for a simple stamp I guess!


Now to go join my boyfriend in watching Star Wars. He keeps turning the volume up…I think its a hint (yes, I wrote this over the weekend…right now I need to go see if I can grab some Dim Sum on Labor Day)!
