Paint All The Nails Presents Monochrome

April 28, 2016

I am super excited because today is another Paint All The Nails link-up, which is just about my favorite day of the month here on my little space of the internet!

Today our theme is Monochrome, which is pretty lucky because I was a massively unprepared panda for this one, so whipped up something super fast! In the end I’ve loved it so much, I’m currently still wearing it! Our link-ups are always a great opportunity to see what everyone else is up to, and of course, get some inspiration for future manicures, so make sure your go check out the other ladies work when you’re done here!

For this challenge, we had to stick with traditional monochrome shades from white, through grey (if we liked) to black. These shades always look so good!

For my base I chose Polish My Life Saint which is a slightly greyed white creme. I just love it because it has all the excellent qualities of a white, without the harshness of a pure white! I applied two thin coats of Saint and sealed it in with a coat of topcoat.

When that was dry I added a squares stamping pattern from Uber Chic Beauty Plate 7-03 (yup, again) using Joss Black Stamping Polish. For this I used my new Big Jelly Stamper from Picture polish, which is an awesome stamper to use. I really am enjoying it!

And so here is my simple, finished monochrome look!

What do you think of these? As I said, even though I rushed, I really love how they look as a full manicure and really don’t want to take it off tomorrow, but sadly, I must!

Now make sure you pop below to see the rest of the PATN ladies and their monochrome goodness with me! Posts will be rolling in as the day goes on so check back in if you miss any!
