HPB Presents: Monochrome Nail Art

Painted Fingertips | Black and white pattern nail art

Hi everyone!

I’ve taken part in the Hobby Polish Bloggers themed linkups a couple of times before and this time the theme is Monochromatic. HPB is a great group for anyone who blogs nails so I highly encourage you to check it out if you’re a blogger! When I did this nail design last week I hadn’t particularly had the theme in mind, but luckily, it works for the theme anyway. Painted Fingertips | Black and white pattern nail art

I was inspired by this post by Wondrously Polished, which I’ve had pinned for ages. When I looked through my Pinterest board and saw it again I had to recreate it right away. I made some changes to the pattern on a couple of nails and thought up my own pattern for my thumbnail to fit in with the theme. Painted Fingertips | Black and white pattern nail art

Monochromatic usually means shades of one colour as opposed to just black and white, and technically, this manicure does contain a very dark purple. I was out of black polish so I used Essence Prom-Berry for the dark base. For the white base, I used Sinful Colors Snow Me White. I used black and white acrylic paints and my fine nail art brush to paint the pattern. Painted Fingertips | Black and white pattern nail art

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I love painting this type of patterned nail art. I think this might be my favourite type of nail art to do. Freehand but just with a couple of colours in a pretty pattern. Painted Fingertips | Black and white pattern nail art

I was really happy with how these came out and couldn’t wait to share them with you. What do you think?
