It has been a while since I painted any detailed nail art so I decided this week to go back to my roots and take the time to create some intricate nails. I used a mandala pattern as inspiration for the design and decided to keep these black and white to keep it simple and show off the details.
I painted these nails over a base of white nail polish (OPI Alpine Snow) and added in the details using black acrylic paint.
Although I have drawn a few mandalas for fun in my spare time I decided to use a printed one for my backdrop as it was much neater than any I created. I guess I am much better at small detail than larger pictures!
I love the way these nails look, black and white is such a simple but effective combination.
