Summer Challenge: Day 62 - Carnival

Once again I am late in posting.  I had this design done this morning and I wore it all day, but I had to leave to go to my niece's Sweet Sixteen, so I didn't have time to type up the post.  I'm still trying to get over the fact that my niece is 16! Were did the time go?!?!?!  Plus I really feel old!

For my design I decided to go with a Venice Carnival theme.  My main inspiration for my design came from a picture that I came across on Google.

Isn't this mask beautiful?  Plus it's white and black, my favorite combination!

I started with 3 coats of my brand new bottle of Picture Polish White Wedding.  This is an amazing white polish.  I love the shimmer that is in the polish, but it is impossible to get a good picture.  I just wish it wasn't so expensive, and small!

For the design I used BM314 and Essence Black is Back.

Using Essie No Place Like Chrome and a nail brush I added some silver details.

And I topped it off with 2 coats of HK Girl.

I really like the way this design turned out.  It is very elegant and stunning.
