The BATTLE (Nail Polish) Challenge - Week 2

This next installment is Black vs White.

Both equally classic and chic on their own, but I decided to combine the two for my design.
I started with a coat of my favourite white shimmer from City Chic 
(an Australian size 14+ brand - you should check out their website - they ship worldwide!)
Then I added a nail foil in Black Lace, that I purchased ages ago from Nail Delights 
(they are cheap, easy to use and I love them for my curved nails)

Here is the result:
With Flash
Lamp Light
Natural Light
 I hope you enjoyed this design!

    1. Thanks Julz - you should try the foils if you haven't already - it's a great way to cover up a mani that's chipping too))

  5. What is the name of your base color? It is GORGEOUS!

    1. Hi Sarah! As with most of these polishes that are not by a cosmetic company - it's nameless unfortunately((( But it's a snow-white shimmer with a golden tint.

  6. Aha! The elusive City Chic. I had heard about this store at work and wondered what the name actually was. Thanks for helping me out there.

    The design looks great too. I have never tried foils either.

    1. They are a great resource for girls who want to be stylish, yet don't fit into the "normal" (read: baby) sizes LOL. A lot of times the stores have a nail polish display at the check out, and this was the case - I just grabbed it as an afterthought. But It's served me well for about 5 years now))
