It was supposed to be a post with swatches of a simple mani featuring my new black and white top coat over a grey base, but then I though that all of you saw such combos many times before. Boring and not that unique any longer. That’s why I came up with this design:
I’m not saying it’s something totally new and amazing (because it’s not), but the design was fun to do anyway :) For this look I used Dance Legend #07 – a black and white top from the DL Aztec collection of art tops:
To make the post more informative, I picked 5 random base colors to show you the polish layered over them in 1 coat.
The colors on the wheel are:
- A-England Galahad
- Lumene Late Winter
- Essie Navigate Her
- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Wet Cement
- A-England Guinevere
Black & white over grey is a classic trio, and I also liked the top over the teal base.
And now back to the design, a close up:
You might have noticed a black heart shaped rhinestone in the first pic. The thing is I wasn’t sure if it’s ok or “too much” to use it, that’s why I posted pics with and without the heart for you to decide :)
Overall, for the grey and white nail design with lace and words I used:
- Orly Nail Defense clear base
- Sally Hansen Wet Cement grey base color
- OPI Alpine Snow white creme
- Dance Legend Aztec top #07
- Black acrylic paint
- Clear top to seal the acrylic lace design
The grey/white color block is done with tape, the text and laces are painted freehand. I had no idea what to write on my accent nail, so I just painted “Lost” and “ivea”, because I was lost and I had a Nivea hand cream on the desk in front of me. Silly I know %)
I hope you liked the Dance Legend top, and the design. Thank you for reading!
*The product was sent to me for review

It looks great over every color!
Thank you Natalie! I’m glad you liked the top :))
I love the glitter it looks perfect over the grey :D I seriously hope I’ll get my hands on some black and white glitter soon :)
Yep, a classic combination :) I’m glad you liked the top, it’s growing on me too, because it’s quick and so easy to refresh many old colors with just 1 coat of it :)
Intresting design :) Love the nail polish.
