Black and White challenge day 2

So, Robin Moses is my idol when it comes to nail design.  If you don't know who she is you need to go to the link, become amazed and stalk her.  She is on Pinterest, FaceBookYouTube, and I am sure tons of other sites as well.  Guess I am not that good of a stalker... :)  So, she inspired me for my white on black mani with her French Kiss tutorial.  (This link just takes you to the picture.  If you want to see the youtube video you can just click here).  I used two coats of Wet N' Wild Black Creme, and my Kiss Nail Art Paint in white for the lips, and they are topped with a layer of Seche Vite.  I think I did pretty good for a newbie with the nail art brushes.  I think I am going to have to follow Robin's advice and make my own custom ones for better control though.  The long brushes are hard to work with most of the time.

So, this is my left hand, which is my bad hand and I think it turned out pretty dang well!

And my right hand.  I am screwed up on my pointer finger but it kinda makes it look like a funny smiley face.  he he .

So, what do you guys think?  Is any one doing this challenge along side me?

Blue Me Away

This is just a quick post of the mani I did last night.  I will post another one today for day two of the black and white challenge, which I am super excited for.  I found a mani similar to this on pinterest and that is where the inspiration sprung.  I am pretty pleases with the end look.  There are two coats of Blue Me Away by Sally Hanson, the purple is Wet N' Wild's On a Trip, and the silver is Celeb City from Sally Hanson.  I love Celeb City, so pretty and sparkly.
