Funky Pink and Black Nails

ORIGINAL POST DATE: August 23, 2010
I'm back with another nail design that I did not too long ago. Maybe a month. I have all these photos of nail designs that I've done, and now I can share them with the world through my blog.
This nail design is very... glittery. :) And sparkly. :D
First my nails looked like this:

And then I decided I wanted all my nails to match, so I redid the fourth finger to match the others. And then to give the design a little something, a little "je ne sais quoi," I added a rhinestone to each nail! I love my rhinestones. I hope you know that. So this is what my nails ended up looking like:

Polishes used:
  • Sally Hansen HD Hi-Definition: Byte
  • It’s So Easy Stripe Rite: Silver
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear: Black Out
I really like this design! It's simple, but it's nice. And I love the color combination. I have ALWAYS thought black and pink went well together.
So, first I just applied "Byte" as a base color. I waited for Byte to dry. Then I used "Black Out" on the tips of my nails, like a French manicure. Wait for that to dry. Then I used the Silver glitter polish. It has a thin brush so it's easy to make a nice clean line. Lastly, I added the rhinestones. And obviously I applied a base and top coat. I never mention that I use a base and top coat, but I always do, and I think it's obvious!
Now, these nails are kind of a wild French manicure. The hot pink and black combo kind of makes it look punk-chic. SO. In my opinion, this would be really cool for prom, if you have a black dress, especially if it's accented with pink. It's a daring nail design. :D Do you agree?
