I admit I wasn't very creative coming up with the title. I wore these nails for around ten days, I made them for my Belgium trip, that's also the reason the base is nude - the chips don't show that much.
The design was inspired by the pinky from this mani over at Boom Nails, I loved it the moment I saw it and saved it for later.

I started with two coats of The New Black nude polish (below), then I painted on the rounds with acrylic paint, I also used acrylic paint for the black stripes and then I outlined the rounds with black gel pen - round shapes are way easier with a pen than with a brush.
As a top coat I used the clear The New Black polish below, it was the day I ran out of my regular top coat.
I was very happy with the result and it still looked good enough after the ten days in Belgium (brilliant trip, by the way). I was surprised how good top coat that The New Black polish made, it dries so fast and protects the mani well.
What do you do when you can't do your nails for ten days or more on a vacation? Do you go with nude nails, just survive the chips or does the polish last long enough on you?
Take care! :)
