NOTD: Black & White

I've been trying to get back into a little bit of Nail Art lately, including a Rose Nail Art tutorial (broken link removed) over on Cas's blog Serenity of Beauty, as well as a Rainbow Polka Dots Nail Art tutorial (broken link removed) for Marijke at Viva Coco. Please do have a peek and leave a comment if you like what you see - and do check out Cas and Marijke's blogs, they're two very lovely ladies! By the way, I seem to get a lot of questions about my nails (ie, are they real?), so much so that I have a post over on PVBDaily about how I look after my nails (broken link removed); please do have a read if you'd like to know more!
Today I've got some Black & White themed nail art to share. I started with OPI Nail Envy as a base coat, followed by 2-3 coats of Models Own 'Snow White' on all nails - I really don't like this polish, it's so streaky and dries unevenly, but it's the only white polish I have and I'm trying to use it up! I then applied two coats of Barry M's Confetti Effects polish in 'Liquorice' to one nail, and two coats of L'Oreal Confetti Topcoat to another. On the remaining three nails, I used my Barry M Nail Art Pen in Black to do pinstriped, polka dot and a tribal design. I finished with a coat of Seche Vite to seal everything in nicely, smooth over the glitter, and give a glossy shine to my nails. I'm really happy with how these turned out and think they look quite unusual. My pinstripes are a little bit wonky but other than that I don't think I did a bad job ;D
