FingerFood’s Theme Weeks: Dots & Stripes: Black & White

It’s dots and stripes in this week’s FingerFood’s Theme Buffet challenge.

I was inspired to do this manicure by a dress I saw. At first I created the stripes only, and it looked like the Pizza Express branding – no bad thing seeing as I was eating out at Pizza Express that evening with friends, and again the following day with my family!

Then I added the dots. Unfortunately, they’re a bit wiggly, but the overall effect is quite nice.

I used my staple black and white: W7 Black and Sinful Colors Snow Me White.

Here’s the dress that inspired these nails:

hahahaha! It is almost the same dress!!
Except mine has the top all in black but the bottom is just like it!!!
What a coincidence! Anyway, I love both looks and I think your wiggly dots (which I could only find two or three of those) add grace to it all – very much like you’d get from a dress in movement :DD
Again, love this one, Claire! *

How funny that’s it’s almost the same dress. You’re too kind Mina; the dots aren’t at all straight … they are wibbly wobbly all over the place!

This is so pretty! I looks like the dress, but without the spots it does remind me of Pizza Express too! 🙂

That dress is BEAUTIFUL! Great choice for inspiration! For whatever it’s worth, I don’t think we have a Pizza Express near me, so I’d have no idea what that was from hehe. I do like the look both ways though! Very neat 🙂

No, I think Pizza Express is a uniquely British restaurant chain. Have a look at their website though and you’ll see the black and white striped branding.

EDIT – My mistake. There are other restaurants too – just not in the US: there are “40 overseas in Europe, Hong Kong, India and the Middle East.”
