31DC2013 - Day 07: Black & White? Skyscrapers!

So... guess who's got a dripping nose and a sore throat? :/
Now you know why I didn't post yesterday! 

I tried, I really did but believe me, trying to do your nails while fighting hard to keep your nose from running proved to be too much of an herculean task for my throbbing headache to cooperate! ;)

But I'm half back on the horse today and despite my body feeling like a scrunched up piece of paper and all that goodness flu can bring to you, I had an idea - skyscrapers.

'Cause nothing matches feeling ill like a gray and busy city landscape, right? ;)

Here we go then:

I had the help of a picture I found on google search, because I didn't want all my buildings to look the same. You can see the picture here.

For the background, I used my first ever polish to have the right for a backup in my stash: Bellaoggi Snow White.

And although I wanted to use my acrylics and nail art brushes badly, I knew it would just be too much for me, so I went with a black sharpie instead ;)

It's not my best but I didn't want to fail at this challenge.
Now if you really want to see some awesome black and white mani, you definitely must check (although I think you might haev already done so ;)) Chalkboard Nails for this one.
She achieved such an amazing look, I stared in awe at her photos for like 10min! Yep :D

Mind you there'll be two posts today - metallic nails theme is on today - so see you in a while or so ;)

Hugs & Kissies,
