Monochrome Monday

Late in posting, sorry about that! A few of my polish friends and I decided to do monochrome manicures today, and here is mine. 

It's Rick and Ilsa from Casablanca! Okay, my Bogart is not great (his face is too long), but I think I got Ingrid Bergman fairly well! On my index and pinky finger are sections of film. (Film is that stuff that movies used to be recorded onto, I know so retro!)

I started with white nails using Essie Blanc for the base, (oooo, I just realized that I used a polish called Blanc for my Casablanca nail art!! I'm so cool!) and then used only black and white acrylic paints to make the artwork on my nails. 

Here you can see Rick has more shading and I adjusted a few things, but still is face is too long. I am very happy with Ilsa. :) Topped with Seche Vite and cut! Print, that's a wrap.
