NOTD: 40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Black & white

Hello Sweeties! I am rushing to write this post so it still goes live while it is yet Friday 6th here in Switzerland, right now is twenty to midnight :-/ 
Well, I'm only posting today because I did this manicure a while ago and wanted to share it. This is for the 52 weeks Challenge I'm participating in and the promt is "Black and white" plus 3D embellishments. 

I had a difficult week. I guess things aren't getting any better with my baby, and as she would only sleep in my arms (day AND night) or cry her lungs out my life is pretty miserable at the moment. I barely get any sleep and my days go between holding my baby or listening to her scream. Not quite ideal, huh? (of course I'm trying by all means to find out what is going on, but until today nobody has found anything wrong with my baby... except of course that she cries a lot and she sleeps too little).

Well, but enough about that. Today I wanted to show you a manicure I'm pretty happy with!
To achieve it I first painted all fingernails with Essence White wild ways, except the ring finger nail where I used  Manhattan sugar effect Give me sparkle, Gorgeous textured black and silver. I stamped using Essence Stampy black, and the Bundle Monster plate BM-XL12 with a heart and love theme. As my "technique" prompt was 3D embellishments, I though it was the perfect occasion to use these heart shaped nail decoration from Born Pretty Store. They are a bit bigger than what I would usually go for but I kind of like the jewel look.

What do you think of this mani? Does it get approved or not? Let me know your thoughts and wish me luck so my baby will hopefully finally sleep well this night.



  1. I dealt with the same thing when my son was an infant. He cried when I put him down, but I think that was partially my fault because I would allow him to sleep on my chest. I love your nails though. When I used to babysit my little cousin I would put her in a swing, so that I could get stuff done. Trust it will get better with age though.

  2. I love the accent nail polish :D the classic color combo is always a winner for me :) wish you all the best with the baby. <3

  3. Loved your manicure, especially the ring finger - nice touch. Noticed that we have the same pattern prompt. Hope that the baby will have some more sleep and more peace / calmness for mom.

    This is the kind of nail art that you just HAVE to keep looking at over and over again and again and again :-)

  5. Oh tesoro! Mi dispiace per la situazione... tieni duro! Splendida nail art, è davvero bellissima!

  6. Outstanding manicure!! The 3D decoration makes it's very particular :D

  7. I am so sorry that you deal with this problem, but I think with the time it will going to change. My daughter cried too when I was not near to her, but it was not so bad, so I can not give you any advice :( As about your nail art it is so amazing and creative, each nail is super special! I wish you all the best dear and just hang in there!

  8. Aprobadas totalmente! Estan divinas :)

  9. I'm so sorry about your baby, I hope she's ok!

  10. I hope that your daughter feels better now... and you too! :-)
    Fantastic mix, I love black & white combinations! :-)
