Digit-al Dozen Does Black & White

Hi Everyone Happy Monday!  Today kicks off the Digit-al Dozen's Black & White Week.  And man is it needed--black for mourning the death of that Packer game yesterday! OH MY LORD!  Who expected to see that happen?! Yikes definitely not me!  I watched every single painful moment BUT while I was doing so I had the chance to do a Monkey See, Monkey Do Monday mani!!! Woot!!! I haven't done one is a long time.  There are a lot of great black and white mani's done but some really talented people too BUT I have always, ALWAYS loved the one I recreated for you today.

I chose to do the black and white gradient zebra Diana from D.I.A.N.A did.  This was an entry to fashion inspired contest Anna over at the Wacky Laki had.  I've have been inspired by both of these ladies for over two years now.  I'm lucky enough to be in a couple of Facebook groups with them and I've learned alot from the both of them as well!

So kicking off the black and white week I give you--gradient zebra!
Isn't this one WILD!!!!!!
With Diana being Dutch I couldn't use any of the same polishes she did so I had to improvise.  I used Sinful Colors Black On Black and Snow Me White and for the grey I used my franken Shibari MASTER

This is the dress that inspired Diana to do the mani
It's pretty gorgeous!

Here's a side by side of my mani and the dress
I honestly think a black, grey and white gradient is one of the most striking you can do.  Check out how great thumbie looks!
I stamped using M57--which is the only thing of Diana's original mani I did have!

Here's a collage with pics of both Diana's and my mani--I really loved doing this one!

I think this week is going to be amazing for the Digital Dozen!  I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!!


  1. So beautiful and looks great with the dress!

  2. This is perfect. As usual, the queen of gradients strikes again!

  3. Reminds me of the Okapi mani I did for animal week! I love it in black and white!!

  4. I love your version and so honored to be on your blog :)

  5. I love it! I think I like yours a teensy bit more, just because I love how the zebra print is starting to 'disappear' into the black. You placed your stamping and your gradient perfectly in relation to each other. :)

  6. These are really pretty, they match perfectly with that dress!

  7. Oh my gosh, WERK! This is fab-u-loussss :)

  8. love this!! gradient and zebra stripes just go together perfectly!
