The Digit-al Dozen Does Black: Skittlette

Monday, 13 February 2017


Welcome to the start of what is going to be a dark, dark week!  This week is definitely something a long way from my usual light and bright manis, but when you do a nail art challenge you really do step away from your usual manis.  For the next five days I will have five all black manis for The Digit-al Dozen.  Today's mani I have a bit of a mixed bag of a mani.  There is some textures and sheer polishes plus matte.  

For this mani I used Pretty Serious Cosmetics Absence (which is nearly completely empty ahhh!), OPI Emotions (the textured polish), Emily de Molly's Black Sheer Tint (this was originally a custom but I am pretty sure she sells it now) and Powder Perfect's Black Stamping Polish.  The stamping design is from Pueen Cosmetics Halloween Party 01 stamping plate.




I am currently loving matte manis at the moment so couldn't resist mattifying this mani.  I seriously love it.


I am so excited to see what the other girls have come up with for their first mani.

    1. Thanks Lothwen. I agree, some manis NEED to be matte. I think the matte of this mani is my favourite! I can't wait to see what else you do this week

  3. Ooh this is so gothic and I love it matte - it really adds to the overall finish. I'm also a big fan of matte manis, there is little a matte topcoat doesn't improve!

    1. Thanks Vicky. I love the matte too. And you are right. It's very gothic. I am thinking I'll have to recreate them when it's Halloween

    1. Thank you. I took the meaning of this month's challenge to mean using all black so I have stuck with that for this week. Based on everyone else's mani I think I may be the only one who interrupted it that way lol
