October Nail Art Challenge Day 1: Black

Today marks Day 1 of the CBB October Nail Art Challenge. A small group of us got together and came up with some fun ideas for this time of year (Sarah, Chantal, Miranda and myself). We invite everyone to join in; whether you blog, or just want to showcase it on Twitter or Instagram, be sure to use #CBBOctNails so we can take a look at your creations!

Day 1's theme is Black. I recently received some nail vinyls and could not wait to use them. This was the perfect time.

- essence Black is Back
- Seche Vite Top Coat
- Essie Matte About You Top Coat
- Chevron vinyl stickers by Eat.Sleep.Polish

I started with 2 coats of Black is Back followed by the Seche Vite top coat.Once fully dried, I applied the chevron nail vinyls to each finger. Doing one finger at a time, I applied the matte top coat and removed the vinyls right away before the top coat started drying.

And voila! Gloss and Matte black nails.


  1. These look awesome! And I'm jealous you have ESP chevrons. They were sold out when I ordered from her last time.

  2. I love this! I thought of doing something similar too (shiny & matte). It just looks so stylish. :-)
