Golden Oldie Thursday - Black Base with flowers


Hi all!

And it's Thursday again! For today we had to do a black base. Shhh, but my black base is not that old, 6 months or so. The white is though! I practised my freehanding skills for this mani, using only a striping brush!


Black & White:
  • W7 - 28 Black
  • Paris Memories - 234


Black base obviously, 2 coats. I started with my leaf design, stem first, tiny leaves next. After a few I was getting the hang of these and they were pretty fast to do. Then I added some bigger and smaller flowers. They could be better with more practise. The flowers got some black detailing, as I said I did everything with a striping brush. To hide an oops I added some random white stalks (grass leaves people!), before sealing it in with HK Girl top coat. I waited at least 20 minutes but this white did bleed a bit.



I like the leaves best and have ideas for future manis using these!



Besides having to practice more flowers, I am very happy with these!

More black base mani's down here!

    1. :), zwart wit is inderdaad altijd mooi. En ik ben blij met deze lengte... mijn rechterhand echter is veel korter, van de week weer mijn wijsvingernagel ingescheurd :(
