13 Days of January - Day 1 - Follow a Tutorial - Black and White Smoky Marble

Hi everyone! Today is Day 1 of a fun little challenge myself and a few friends are doing this month! It's a modified/mini version of the Crumpet's Nail Tarts 31 Day Challenge for 2015. We will have a nail art prompt 3 times a week which is more doable for me than every day for a month. 

I'm hoping to keep up and try some designs I may not have done otherwise. I'm also looking forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with for the prompts!

So here is my Day 1 mani for the prompt Follow a tutorial. I chose to follow this smoky/marbled tutorial by Sloteazzy on Instagram. I loved her red and black version of this and I have been meaning to try it since she posted it. Though today I decided to change up the colours a little and use black and white, inspired by this mani by Nicole at Nail Polish Wars. I realised afterwards that Nicole used the same technique for this one too. 

13 Days of January - Day 1 - Follow a Tutorial - OPI Alpine Snow & Kiko 275

Sloteazzy's video tutorial explains the process really well so I won't repeat it all here. The polishes I used are OPI Alpine Snow, a great basic white creme, and Kiko 275 Black.

I really like how this turned out and I'll be sad to take it off! What do you think of it?
