So, the next post up for The 31 Day Challenge is black and white. I couldn't think of anything I really liked for this, so I did things a little differently. Initially I was thinking of doing black with white accent nails. But that reminded me too much of my mall goth/totes punk rock days of doing all black with red on accent nails, so I wanted to stay far far away from that. I decided to use black, and use China Glaze's White Cap over it. Hey, it has white in the name, and it's in a white base! Close enough, right?
Fade to Black is, you know, your usual black creme. I would have never spent $18 on a basic black nail polish, but I found it on clearance for $3 at Trade Secret. And I'm all about things on clearance for $3. It applies like a dream. It glides on so smoothly, and dries fairly quickly. I used two coats, and it looked so chic, that I had trouble putting anything over it! I do wish the brush wasn't so freaking tiny though.
White Cap is bottled perfection! It is such a pretty polish, and I can't imagine a color it wouldn't look good layered over. I love that it can look gold or green, depending on the light. It also applied smoothly, and dried quick. I just wish it hadn't taken me this long to use it!
