April Mani Swap with Goldnchyld - Yellow and Black Graphic Nail Art

Happy hump day folks! It's raining buckets here today and there's even snow in the forecast for tomorrow but never you mind - I am rocking bright yellow nail art on the blog today! 

In one of the many nail polish groups I belong to a monthly mani swap is arranged. I always miss the deadline to join but I was quick enough this time and I got partnered with none other than Tiffani aka, Goldnchyld. Now if you follow a lot of nail artists and bloggers on Instagram, then yo probably no who I am referring to. I am a huge fan of her nail art. It's always so creative, clean and precise. Three things I myself am always striving for in my nail art. So I was beyond excited when I found out she would be by partner for this month. I had soooo much nail art to choose from and had a hard time settling on one. But this particular design has so many elements that I love and I wanted to try it out for myself!

I didn't have a yellow quite as neon and bright as the one Tiffani used. I settled for Zoya Pippa. First I started out with white as my base like Tiffani did in the pic on the right. I then painted on my yellow, leaving the sides white. Using a striping brush I then took black polish and painted on the thin black lines or "strokes" haphazardly along the sides of the nail. 

Tools used:

Winstonia Striping Brush

Polishes used:

Sinful Colors Snow Me White

Zoya Pippa

Hit the Bottle As Black as Night

KBShimmer Clearly on Top

I am really happy with how these turned out! It's pretty close to the original design if I do say so myself. The only thing bugging me is the yellow isn't as bright. Meh. 

I had so much fun doing this and Tiffani is really sweet! If you don't follow her on Instagram here is the link to her page.  Also search the hashtag #paamaniswap for more fabulous nail art swaps!
