I'm in love with this Rorschach Inkblot manicure. It spawned simply from wanting black and white nails without using polka dots or stripes. That was it really. But after I thought of it, I was perplexed at how to achieve the look without just free-handing it. So I kind of incorporated both. Obviously it can be recreated with any two contrasting colors and look great, but I love the high contrast black and white right now. Careful making your designs too wide though... it could go "cow" really easily ;)

What You'll Need:



* Sephora by OPI "A-ha! Moment"
* OPI Siberian Nights... almost black
* Essie ~ Good to Go top coat
* Painter's tape & scissors


* Rip a piece of painter's tape about an inch long. Carefully fold it in half, leaving the top apart and cut a small design into your folded edge. Think about a heart... you cut half a hear on a folded piece of paper then open it and you get a perfectly proportioned heart. This is the same.


* I created about 10 different designs. ** My best designs were of three different sized shapes a bit apart {see the one with the heart below?}. Then I easily connected the shapes with a dot of polish in between... those came out the most inkblotty.


* After applying a few coats of your white or base polish and allowing it to dry, adhere your tape design over your nail and carefully paint your darker shade over it.


* Only allow it to set for a few seconds, then carefully pull your tape off. You don't really want your design to be perfect.
