So what do a $645 pair of shoes and my manicure of the week have in common?
So this week I am still suffering from broken nail trauma, and I think dark colors look better on shorter manicures, but I didn't want just glossy black nails - I wanted some sass!
So I gathered up a shiny black lacquer, a classic Red (sent to me by the lovely Nat from Gl0ssy) and a shiny top coat. I also grabbed my roll of stripping tape which I forgot to photograph but I bet you can guess what it looks like.
First I painted my thumb and ring finger with 2 coats of red, let it dry, applied the stripping tape and then painted to coats of black across each nail. ( The Rimmel polish was a bit thick, I should have stuck to Orly's Liquid Vinyl).
Et viola! But the real similarity lies in the middle picture above. I also painted the underside of my nails red, just like the shoes ;)
What inspires your manicures?
