Deborah Lippmann & China Glaze White Cap

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!

Happy weekend!


  1. Oooooh, this is stunning! It's so iridescent.

  2. Oh, wow! This is an awesome combination!

  3. What a pretty mani! I love just plain black mani's that and red ones are perfect for everything!

  4. I love this. White Cap seriously gives any polish a new look,and you're right, I can't think of a polish it looks bad over!
