First up people - I have a secret to tell. Tomorrow night I'm announcing the biggest thing to ever happen to me as a nail blogger EVER! I'm so excited to share with it with you as I've been keeping this secret for months. So please come back tomorrow to see what it is.
Something a bit fun today. Here are some black and white bar code nails I created. I received a huge number of compliments from people yesterday and today on this mani. One even wanted to know if I could scan through at a checkout!.
I made these using DRK-A Plate. It has the most perfect lines design that when I first saw it I new I had to do this mani. In fact I'm surprised I haven't seen another bar code mani using this stamp design.
I painted my nails white using Ulta 3 Lily White and then when stamping, I just made sure to leave a white tip gap at the bottom.
I stamped the numbers at the bottom of my nail in groups of two or three. The numbers are actually the plate numbers from the bottom of various Bundle Monster plate, where is it engraved with BM-215 or BM-324 etc.
I struggled keeping the stamp straight on my nail, I still need much more practice. I also made a dreadful mess all over my fingers and cuticles because the stamp is so large. Konad black special polish is one nasty polish to have to clean up with. I also had some smearing from the top coat. So in reality there is lots of room for improvement, but I'm still really happy with how these turned out.
See you all tomorrow for my exciting news.
