Color Accent Challenge Nails!

Good evening! ^.^

I told you that I'd try to bring it up a few notches today, right? I sure hope this doesn't disappoint! This week we were given the instructions to do a grayscale manicure - we could use white, black, and gray with one color to give it some oomph! Haha okay, maybe not exactly in those words, but I like that word - OOMPH! Even my BF is laughing and going "Oomph! Oomph!" with me. Yes, we're weird like that lol. ^.^ So this manicure almost didn't survive, but I'm really happy with the end result and I hope you like it too. ^.^ I bring to you my entry for Polish Hoarder Disorder's color accent challenge.

Base colors:
Brucci - Alexandra's Gray
Icing - Ice Queen
Precision - U Rock & I Roll
Wet n Wild - Black Creme

Konad - M60 (plaid and flowers)

For the plaid, I used Konad Special Polish in White. For the flowers, I used Konad Special Polish in Pink and colored over them with Art Club nail art striper in Light Purple, which looks more like a hot pink to me... Maybe magenta? Then I used Mattese nail art striper in White to fill in the centers of all the flowers.

So there you have it! I hope you've enjoyed :) Thanks for stopping by! :D
