B&W Glitter Skittle With Braided Accent

I am so excited to share my newest nail art with ya'll today! It was inspired by the extremely talented Sammy over at The Nailasaurus and I recreated THIS post. I have had that picture saved in a "to-do" folder on my laptop for a while and I finally got my hands on Hard Candy's Black Tie Optional and went for it!

 I was so happy with how this turned out! Thanks for the idea Sammy! And while you're visiting her, you should check out her cleverly titled posts inspired by FOB! :D 

Honestly, the "braided" accent nail was not as hard as it seems, although a bit time consuming (waiting for layers to dry) I just used the polish brush.

I was a little skeptical about Hard Candy's B&W glitter topcoat since it was only 4 bucks, but this is only 2 thin coats! I am super impressed.

I am still getting used to camera angles, lighting, and hand positioning. I'm a fast learner though and am going to construct a light box soon following THIS tutorial from the lovely Sarah from Chalkboard Nails! I have come a long way though haven't I?

I hope ya'll enjoyed this! I am also working on posting faster. I had to get the hang of watermarks, cropping, etc. Practice makes perfect!
