Here are 40 cool and funky Black & White Nail Art designs
Before commencing black and white nail art projects, it is important to prepare the nail. Good preparation maintains the health of the natural nail and ensures a smooth, shapely canvas on which to work. If preparation is skipped, nail products do not adhere well and can leave a poor nail finish, so even if professional nail technicians have little time on their hands, they will always perform basic nail prep.
A base coat is important before any polish color is applied as it prevents the nail from staining and contributes to the longevity of the design. As a general rule, apply a base coat in one thin layer to the natural nail and allow it to dry before applying a thin coat of color. When this first coat of color is tacky or nearly dry, apply a second thin coat. Two thin coats of polish dry faster and last longer than one thick coat, which will simply peel off.
There are tons of options when it comes to black & white nail art – you could do polka dots, stripes, checkers, spider-web, french manicure etc. You would need a few basic tools like bobby pins, tape, lace etc. The goal is to just have fun along the way rather than focussing on the outcome. Take a look at the below gallery for some black & white nail art inspiration.
