Day 7 - Black And White

WOW, a whole week just passed in the 30 Days of Untried Challenge!! We're on already on day 7 which I dreaded a lot. Black and White nails... I really have some weird issue with it. I can love totally white nails and I can love totally black nails. I can get along pretty well with black and grey or with white and off white combos. But black and white? I just can't stand that on me! I just HAVE to have another color in between! So I was really worried about today's mani, but the awesome Michelle of Things I Love At The Moment just gave me the most wonderful idea for a B&W mani! Thank you Michelle so much ♥     
The Nail Junkie - Watermelon Jelly Shimmer and Cover Band - Sticks n Stones

So I grabbed my most favorite Orange-Red polish, which is The Nail Junkie's Watermelon Shimmer, Applied two coats, then I applied one coat of Cover Band - Sticks n Stones and then I had a problem: To sandwich or not to  sandwich . That is the question!
And since I could not come up with one answer to this existential question, I  sandwiched my left hand, but  did not sandwich my right hand.

No Sandwich - on top of Sticks n Stones there's only one coat of Gelous

I like both but I prefer the non-sandwich. That base is gorg!

Great idea :D It saved your day! I like it best un-sandwitched, I think it's more true to the title of that day's mani. Otherwise the white fades off... and becomes orange, that poor little thing!
