My main wardrobe color is black, so most of my tops, pants, jackets, sweaters, tights, shoes, and so on are all black. Most of the patterned pieces that I have are black with white, or white with black, and sometimes some different shades of grey thrown in. I really love my wardrobe because everything goes with everything else, and when I buy one new thing, it automatically goes with almost everything else I have. When I want to add a splash of color, I get a top, or pair of pants, or whatever, in a pattern that is mainly black with accent colors. So when I wear any color of bright nail polish it always goes with black – LOL! And when I wear an item with color in it, I try to match or compliment the colors in the pattern. It works out really well for me, and OCD that I am, I am happy that all of my outfit always “goes” together.
But sometimes I want to have a total monochromatic look, and paint my fingernails in black and grey and white. I think that this makes for a more elegant look when I have a special occasion. Al and I went into the bay area to meet some friends for dinner to celebrate my birthday and these are the fingernails that I had then. I used OPI Skull and Glossbones for the base, then I painted a stripe of OPI Number One Nemesis down the middle of each fingernail, and then edged it with It’s So Easy Stripe Right in Black. I just got the striping polish from Sally Beauty and I love it, it really is So Easy!
