#TutorialTuesday: Monochrome Nail Art with Soirée du Jour

Last week we inspired you with a little monochrome inspiration. Today we are showing you how to apply it to your own nails using patterns found in Soirée du Jour's upcoming party decor collection.
 
At Soirée du Jour, we use all sorts of patterns to express our love affair with monochrome. We created five patterns for our new collection and are excited to share them each with you through nail art! Hope the nail designs below inspire you to DIY or take them in to your favorite salon for a mani! 
 
Start here: Clean, cut and file your nails as you like. Prep all 10 nails with OPI Infinite Shine Primer Base Coat. Then lay down two thin coats of OPI Infinite Shine in We're in the Black as your base color on each nail.
 
Next, choose your favorite monochromatic pattern:
