If you’re looking for a high impact manicure idea, you’ll enjoy this Graphic Black and White nail art. A great bonus, it’s super easy to do. Plus, I’m sure you already have black, white and silver (or holo) polishes in your collection. So literally, a no-effort nail art. You’d need though nail stencils! I used these Lightning Bolt stencils. But any other stencils will do too.

Without further ado, let’s see the how-to!

  1. Paint all nails with 2 coats of silver or holographic polish and apply top coat*. Wait till your nails are touch-dry and apply these stencils as pictured.
  2. Now, work one nail at a time. Paint one half of the nail with white nail polish and the other half with black.
  3. Carefully, with tweezers remove the sticker.
  4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 on all nails. Let them dry for 5 minutes, then apply 2 coats of a quick dry clear top coat and you’re done!

*It’s absolutely essential that you apply 1 thin layer of a fast drying top coat over the base. This will help you to prevent lifting the base polish with stencils.
