Black & White Roses

Good day, my friends! Today will be a quick post to show off a simple reverse-colour stamping mani I wore a couple of weeks ago. I was debating whether to write about this one--the photos aren't great and the topcoat smudged them so badly I had to throw those pics out. It looked much nicer in person, but in macro photos it was just dreadful. However, the overall effect was really pretty, I think:

Black and white roses! I wanted to do an "inverted" mani where the colours are reversed from one hand to the next, so I grabbed two Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polishes--Black Out and White On--and painted each hand one colour (black on the left, white on the right, in case anyone cares). I then stamped the roses from Bundle Monster plate BM-323 with the coordinating Konad special polishes. I got some close-up pics before and after topcoating, but as I mentioned earlier, I only have the "before" pics for you today.

The white roses on black. This was the one I liked better, although it was close--they were both really pretty!

And the black roses on white. The rarely-seen right hand, including my poor broken index nail D:

Despite the topcoat-smudging I did wear them for a few days, mostly because I really liked the effect (and like I said, it wasn't nearly so bad from a normal distance).

I think I'm finally getting better with stamping full nail images :D I really like these roses.
Anyway, that's all for today. See you next time! xoxo
