Nail-Art A-Go-Go Challenge Day One - Achromatic Nails

It's the first day of the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge woohoo! I'm seriously pumped for this challenge- I think it's going to be a lot of fun and yet seriously challenging which is a good thing. I almost decided against doing this since I knew I would not be able to commit to posting every single day. I simply have too much going on not only with the blog but in real life and just didn't want to put that kind of pressure on myself. Having done the 31 Day Challenge I know that sitting down and doing nail art and posting every day is a lot. So, I decided to pick the days/prompts that I found exciting/challenging. Of course I had to do the inaugural prompt, which is Achromatic. I have to admit- I had to Google that one. It simply means -per Wikipedia- "without color". Gray, black and white fall into that description and so I decided to do a minimalist- inspired design with those colors.  var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-41312601-1']); _gaq.push(['_setDomainName', 'valiantlyvarnished.com']); _gaq.push(['_setAllowLinker', true]); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);

(function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js'; var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })();

I used three polishes and my nail art brush for this design:
China Glaze Elephant Walk
Sinful Colors Snow Me White
Sinful Colors Black on Black
I love the minimalist vibe of this - I'd forgotten how cool black, white and gray look together. Be sure to check out the other posts today,search the hashtag #NAGGDay1 for posts via Instagram. I posted the graphic showing all the prompts for the comings days and weeks. There is a checkmark next to the days I will be posting!
