Black Tie | #MonthlyMani November

November 19, 2014

Hello, friends!  It is the 3rd Wednesday of the month, which can only mean one thing: it’s #MonthlyMani time!  Our theme this month is “Black Tie” and I am excited to see what all of my fellow #MonthlyMani gals have come up with!  I, for one, decided to go for a fairly minimal, classic design with a fun twist – lilac!

This lilac color is probably my newest favorite shade that adds a fun, unique touch to my daily routine, and the black bow detail was a natural choice given the Black Tie theme.  I also wanted a hint of sparkle so I added teeny silver glitter to my middle finger.  I had a hard time with photos this week, though.  Is it just me or is it really hard taking pictures of your own hands without making them look totally weird??

As you can see, I used the polish “I Lilac You” by Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure for the main color in my manicure.  I used “Chinatown” by N.Y.C. for the bow detail and a simple silver glitter from Forever 21 that I received as part of a gift set.  The bow was surprisingly easy to paint, I just started with a dot in the center of my nail and added a small triangle on either side, all with my ball point dotting tool.
