OMD 31 Day Challenge - Day 4 - Black and White

Today is black and white! I love black and white mani's, they're so sharp and eye-catching.

Unfortunately my mani today is neither sharp nor eye-catching. I attempted to do an ombre saran wrap look, but I think my color choices could use a bit of work.

All fingers started with three coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. Here's what I used on each of my fingers for the saran wrap effect:

  • Thumb: Sinful Colors Tantalize
  • Pointer: NYC Sidewalkers
  • Middle: Maybelline Express Finish Cool Couture
  • Ring: China Glaze Concrete Catwalk
  • Pinky: Wet N Wild Black Creme
I'm kind of meh about this whole manicure. I feel like there's not enough difference between the shades when I used the saran wrap. I think this would be a neat look but needs better color choices than the ones I made. Maybe I'll try it again sometime with different polishes. Lots of potential, bad execution. Oh well, part of blogging is about sharing the good with the not so good right?! 




 Thanks for reading!

  1. When I tried the Saran wrap method for the 31 day challenge I wasn't pleased with how mine turned out either...

    1. It's very finicky apparently!! Sorry you didn't really like yours either. I hate that feeling, all that work to feel disappointed.
