It's Black! It's White! - Final Day

... and this post just had to be late -.-'
Sorry to all the girls who posted on time but last night was a late one, with very little time after work.

Anyway, onto the last day's theme: recreation 






One had to choose a favourite mani from the Black & White Wall of Inspiration and I picked Seriously Swatched mani for the Faux Fur theme - check it out here.

We were allowed to pick one colour and I chose pink, of course!
Want to have a look?






I just HAD to do a gradient! ;)
It's been so long since I did one, that I just felt the urge to gradient the background to the zebra stripes!





I used OPI Alpine Snow and sponged the gradient with a combination of that white and Bellaoggi Bikini Pink.




I then picked up my Kiss SPA12 Black striper and tried (TRIED!) to achieve the zebra stripey look.





It didn't come out too well - in BF opinion it does not resemble a zebra (AT ALL!) but then again...
it was my first time! ;)




Still, I really liked wearing them and will be carrying them around to the beach today as well and that's that! :)



Hope you somehow liked them and that my recreation wasn't too bad!

Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunny weather wherever you are! :D


Hugs & Kissies,
Mina *
