26 GNAI - Black & White Valentines

Friday, 3 February 2017

Fri-yay, you're completely my favourite day of the week. I hope you've all managed to make it to the weekend in one piece and have got some lovely things planned.


Today I have another edition of Crumpets Nail Tarts 26 Great Nail Art Ideas and this time it's Black & White Valentines themed.




For this mani I used Barry M Black Forest and Cotton and stamped using lots of different plates, including this one from CICI&SISI called Fun Stuff 32.

I can not tell you how much I love using these acrylic plates, they're so much easier for me than the traditional metal ones, the images seem to pick up so much easier and they're a lot nicer to handle (no chance of getting a metal cut from the sharp edges).




What do you think about this mani? It was tricky to get the valentines theme across without using any red and pink and although I smudged my lettering and my matte topcoat bubbled my design, I am actually a little in love with it.

Have a great evening and enjoy your lay in tomorrow. I plan on catching up with lots of sleep and nail reviews.

  1. I love this. I don't think I've ever seen anyone do just one French manicure style accent nail, but it works so well with this design! So original and fun!

  2. I love these too! Fantastic job making a B&W Valentine design! The black hearts above the white tip is really cool and ties it all together so nicely. <3

  4. Black and white! Classic! Love the nail with the negative space (is that what it's called? Lol). I can't wait to see valentines nails. It's nice to divert away from reds and pinks. After all love has no colour xx
