Today’s “Black + White” nail art for the @californails November challenge was inspired by Lindsay of @nailthataccent on Instagram. I reversed the colors for my mani, and used a black glitter instead of silver although it is hard to tell. The glitter is just so SPARKLY!! The awesome black matte polish is “Rascal” by Mentality Nail Polish. It has a super smooth formula with just a hint of shimmer, which I hope you can see here. It’s beautiful and reminds me of newly laid asphalt when it has a hint of quartz.
Like Lindsay, this was also my first time trying glitter placement and at first I was really intimidated by the concept. It did take a little bit of extra time to cut the glitters just right, but I think the result was well worth the time. What do you think?
Black & White Glitter Placement – Get The Look
For this look I used:
- Sinful Colors – Snow Me White
- Mentality Nail Polish – Rascal
- Born Pretty Store – 12 Color Hexagonal Glitter Set
- Clear Topcoat (to adhere glitter)
- Bundle Monster – Small Dotting Tool (to place glitter)
- Nail clippers (to cut glitter)
If you want to re-create this look you can get this 12-pack of large hex glitter from the Born Pretty Store. I found them really easy to use and feel like this will last for TONS of manicures.
