Black and White Challenge! Day Six- White on Color

Hi loves!!

  I know, I know.. I'm late with this post.. A WHOLE day late :(. So sorry about that. I had the pics ready to go but completely forgot to do the post the night before and then I woke up yesterday feeling awful and ended up in the hospital for the Second time this year. Needless to say.. I was not about to sit down and blog yesterday... As if by some miracle I am actually at work today but I don't feel very functional so please pardon the "shortness" of this post. The task for yersterday was White on Color.
 For this funky look I started wit Two effortless coats of the lovely and totally amazing, Tallulah by Zoya. Still featuring Blues throughout April for Autism Awareness month. Tallulah is what I would consider to be my all time favorite shade of Blue. For the White accents I used a dotting tool. For this you have to make sure your base color is 100% dry because it requires dragging the dotting tool in quick short movements across your nail. Topped it all off with some Northern Lights.
I'm not really sure what I was going for with this look but I kinda like it... Don't forget to stop by  Sam The Nailasaurus, Rie Nails and Noms, Esther at Fab Fingertips, Stephanie at Sincerely Stephanie and Emily from The Laquerologist to see what they have in store for us today!

  21. I'm a guy who paints his toes and I LOVE This Look, very cool. I've never tried anything but one color on my toes and french tips, but I may try this one day. Or may try it on my wife. If you don't mind, I'd like to post a pic of this on my blog called: 'It's Ok for Men to Have Painted Nails in Public' . I would give a link back to your blog and credit you with it. Might be a week or two until I get it on my blog, so let me know if it's ok, Thanks, Guy
