These are inspired by a dress (shown below) from Carolina Herrera’s Fall 2013 Collection. I love the print and the color combination. For the base, I used a nameless beige color from S&C, then white and black polish to make the squares.
I’m trying Sally Hansen Double Duty Base & Top Coat, and it takes longer to dry than my usual top coat, so I ended up smudging the nails a bit. The black also streaked, which was disappointing. However, I’m mainly interested in it as a base coat to see if it can prevent staining.
