Magical Music Manis 2: Ebony & Ivory ~ Stevie Wonder & Paul McCartney



Yay, it’s Monday again and time for another Magical Music Challenge. Today it’s an oldie all the way back from 1982, namely Ebony & Ivory.

This song calls for a black and white mani in my opinion, so that’s exactly what I did.

Ebony is a dense black wood, so I stamped trees on my index and my pointer. Ebony has a long history of use, with carved pieces having been found in Ancient Egyptian tombs.


Ivory Is a hard, creamy-white material, derived from the tusks and teeth of animals, so I decided to stamp elephants on my ring finger and my middle finger.


Ivory has many ornamental and practical uses. Prior to the introduction of plastics, it was used for billiard balls, piano keys, Scottish bagpipes, buttons and a wide range of ornamental items. Synthetic substitutes for ivory in the use of most of these items have been developed – which is good, because I don’t like the idea of killing elephants just to get their teeth!


Here are the polishes I used. OPI Angel with a Leadfoot, Essence Black is Back and China Glaze Fairy Dust.


Here’s the video to Ebony and Ivory:
