Nail-Art-A-Go-Go Challenge Day 4: Monochrome

As demonstrated by the Digital Dozen a few weeks ago, monochrome doesn’t necessarily mean black and white. That’s the domain of achromatic. Monochrome can mean “shades of one particular colour.” If there’s one colour I seem to own a lot of shades of now, it’s brown.


This design was inspired largely by the mosaic nails I did for Breast Cancer Awareness Month last year. It’s not particularly original, but it is striking!


Once again, I used quite a few polishes in this. The base colour is e.l.f. Desert Haze. The other colours were all freehanded with a brush, and they are:

Barry M Mocha
e.l.f. Smoky Brown
Barry M Mushroom
Claire’s Accessories Brown
Nails Inc Richmond Terrace

What colours do you find you own a lot of? I also have a boatload of reds. I now understand how it is possible to own so many shades of the same colour – they are absolutely not all the same.

There’s still time to sign up at the Polish Passionistas facebook page! Tomorrow’s prompt is Contrast.
