Sunday Challenge: Black and White

For this week's Sunday stamping challenge the theme was black and white. I knew I wanted to do something different, something I hadn't tried before. I've been sick all week and feel like this is a fail but the thought was there. I started off with a coat of Wet N Wild French White as a base for my Red Angel 112 image of scrolls and flowers. I stamped that using Konad special black polish because I needed lots of pigment. I then took Essie's Marshmellow and did a coat over the stamp. Here's where the fail came in... .I should have top coated the black *then* stamped because it smeared the image more than usual. The Red Angel plate is etched pretty deep as well so there is a lot of polish transfer to the nail. I want to revisit this mani again but try a top coat over the black so that it comes out less smudgy and Marshmellow can apply less streaky.
You can check out everyone else's Sunday challenge manis on my Pin Board. I update it throughout the day so check often!
Red Angel 112


  1. This is really cool! It reminds me of a damask pattern on silk. Love it!

  2. I ADORE this!!! Love that you put the Marshmellow over it. I cannot wait to try this despite I don't have a stamp that is anything as pretty as this one.

  3. I like the whole sandwich idea is great. I bet it will come out perfect with the topcoat over the stamping first.
