You guys know that I love color but today,I am going to show you that black and white can be also cool.
What !? In this tutorialI'll show how you can easily achieve these pretty black and white mix and match nails.
Hey loves! Today I'm back with another nail art tutorial and it's a really special onebecause it's a collaboration with the beautiful Jen from the channel Missjenfabulous.
She makesDIY, beauty videos and amazing nail art tutorials.
I love how they are always so creative, easyto make and they always turn out fantastic.
So we decided to join our nail art forcesand create mix and match nails.
I came up with this all black and white design, whileshe created a gorgeous colorful one.
Make sure to watch her tutorial.
It will be linkedat the end of this video and in the description box.
But first, let me show you how to achievethis monochromatic creation, so go grab your black and white polish and let's dive in.
My black and white polish are ready but let's put them on a side for a minute because wehave to prime our nails with a base coat first.
This way we block the nasty staining and keepour nails pretty and healthy.
Alright, now our nails are prepped and readyfor some color.
Paint your thumb and pointer black.
I have to apply two coats for an opaqueresult.
Then paint your middle, ring and pinky finger in white.
At this point your nailsshould look like this.
Quite a funny manicure! But don't worry because we are just gettingstarted! Time to take out your artistic skills and make some designs!On the ring finger we are making a beautiful flower design.
Dip your medium sized dottingtool in black polish and make five dots close together like that to represent the petals.
Make several of these flower shapes all over your nail.
Some can be bigger, some smallerbecause there are all sorts of flowers out there.
I still need some smaller dots to make the design fuller.
Leave the polish dry and thenproceed with the white.
Make smaller white flower shapes on top of the bigger black ones.
This way you will keep that black flower silhouette, which I think looks so stunning.
And it seemslike the design was so difficult to make when it's in fact so easy! To complete the designmake black dots in the center of each flower.
I think this design is so pretty even as anaccent nail to a solid manicure.
On my right hand I made this design on my thumb and Ijust switched the colors – so I have white flowers on black background and I absolutelylove it! On the pinky we are making the easy and alwayscute polka dots design.
Make a row of dots along the center of the nail and then addtwo rows by the sides.
You can go for bigger or smaller dots, I went for a medium sizedones.
If you don't have a dotting tool you can use a q-tip or a toothpick to make thisclassic but lovely design.
So far we made two black designs on the whitebackground.
But, on the middle finger, we are making a yin yang which represents balanceand will connect all of the black and white designs into a story.
Here's how to make aperfect yin yang sign in an easy way! I like to mark three dots along the center of thenail.
Now just connect these dots making an "S" shape using a striper, precise brush oreven a toothpick.
It doesn't have to be flawless right away, you can always go in later andperfect it.
Then color one half in black.
Yin Yang represents how opposite forces areactually interdependent and give rise to each other.
All we have to do now is make a blackdot on the white half and white dot on the black half of the nail.
Help!Moving to our black background designs.
On the pointer we're drawing white trianglesall over the nail.
I am using my precise brush, which I got in a craft store for very cheap.
And you guys know that i love it for nail art.
The triangle lines don't have to be perfectand opaque yet – we are just making a draft first! Now we can go over all the lines againmaking them bolder and neater.
I love this design! The white triangles look so cool onthe dark background, don't you think? This design itself could work great on all thenails or as an accent on a ring finger for example.
On the thumb let's make some classic and classy vertical stripes.
I am not very good witha striper.
That's why I decided to use a tape, which makes perfect stripe designs super easyto achieve.
Stick parallel tape pieces along the nail, apply white polish and peel awaythe tape.
Here I am using a nail art tape, but you can make your own DIY nail art tapeusing usual scotch tape and scissors in a minute! my white polish was getting quitethick and gloopy so I had to mix in a few drops of nail polish thinner.
Voila! The perfectstripes in no time! Oops I did it again! No problem because the precise brush takes careof such small errors in a sec.
And here is our last design all done!I made the same designs on my right hand but i made horizontal stripes on the ring fingerand flowers on the thumb.
Finally we have to apply a top coat to sealall the designs, add some shine and protection.
A matte top coat would look gorgeous on thesenails too, but unfortunately I couldn't find it in any local store! That is it for my monochromemix and match nail art.
I hope you'll give it a try and if you do so, please share yourmasterpieces with me on my social media because you guys know that I love to see those.
Letme know in the comments, what nail art you would like to see next and off course don'tforget to watch Jen's mix and match nails and subscribe to her channel for more of herawesome videos.

Bye! Black and white can sometimes be associatedwith plain and boring, but the story behind this strongest contrast is all but that.
There'sno shadow without light and not a day without night.
