Black and White Glitter Placement – Nail Art Nov13

Affiliate Link Press Sample

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?

  1. Hey Arden stopping by from Will Paint Nails for Food. Love your blog layout and design. Is that your kitty cat, up there? Site seems very easy to navigate, except I must be blind I had a little trouble finding the bloglovin link (think that was totally me though). Only thing I could say is maybe make your pictures a little bigger, I am a visual person and love to see the picture fill the width of the page.

    • Thanks for stopping by Crystal! I appreciate your feedback.

      I understand about the Bloglovin’, I am actually thinking of adding the RSS follows to the new sticky navigation. I have thought about making the pictures bigger as well – my programmer is also my best friend so it’s more of a hilarious debate 😉 . He wants to keep the load times down and I want the pictures to be HUGE. Our compromise was the lightbox when you click on a photo that allows you to view a larger image. I wonder if that worked for you and still wasn’t as large as you would like? Or maybe you prefer just not using that type of feature?

      I have to say I like larger pictures too!

  2. Hey, I’m here thanks to WPNFF critique thing and I must say I love your blog’s design! It’s so clean. Your photos are great quality and your skin looks perfectly healthy, writing is totally fine and I just have nothing to be critical about 😀 great job 🙂

    • Thank you Margee! I used to have really horrible skin, and my right hand still suffers a bit actually, but it’s much better now. This blog has lead me to take MUCH better care of my skin so I really appreciate you noticing!

  3. Hi, I found my way here from the WPNFF Group Critique. I really really love your blog! It’s super easy to navigate, your posts are organized really well, and your photos are spot on.
