Monochrome Carnival

Don’t ask about the title. I don’t have a good reason other than that it sounded good! This is what I am posting for Day 7: Black and White. There is some awesome holo silver-y goodness in there, but that is sorta white. Also, everything looks better with glitter.


I seldom reach for black-and-white of my own volition, but this mani got in my head and I had to try it! I spent a lot of time picking which of my many silver holos to use for the base (linear fine? linear coarse? subtle and light grey? subtle and white? I think I might have too many silver-based holo polishes) and settled on light grey and NOT subtle. 😀


After that came a white stamp and a black stamp made of waves and awesome curly patterns that reminded me of going to a carnival!

~ White: Sinful Colors – Snow me White
~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black


Technically these were my birthday nails (so this post has been waiting since June). I don’t have anything planned out for tomorrow (metallic) and the next day (rainbow) although I think I should have something lying around!

  1. Wow, wow and wow these are stunning. No idea where the name came from don’t really care these are too stunning!

  2. The best titles are the ones that make absolutely no sense, but just sound good. I fully subscribe to that policy. 🙂

  3. Very pretty! I just love the effect of the silver stamping behind the black.

  4. Gorgeous! Im also not the biggest fan of black and white so really like the holo addition 🙂
