Thursday's Talons: Art Nouveau NOTD?

Currently watching: Beauty and the Beast

Hello girls,

I'm going on holiday today, to France and Switzerland, until the beginning of September so although I do have some posts scheduled for your viewing pleasure in my absence, I won't be able to reply to any comments or visit your blogs for a while.


Today's manicure started with two coats of Barry M Matt White and a layer of Essence Night in Vegas to add some sparkle ;-)


 I then added two black stripes to my tips, using a Technic striper.


 My final step was to stamp a red rose on each nail using Bundle Monster plate BM14 and Yesensy 32.


What do you think girls?  I really liked this manicure but next time I will stamp the roses before painting the black lines so there is no overlap ;-)

Bye for now,
Laura

  1. That's really cool, I like it! I was actually thinking about that thing about stamping first, but that simply because I'm not precise enough with the stamping yet :)

  3. It's a good combination, but I like it better with the holographic polish, it was more feminine end gentle!

  5. Enjoy your vacation! :)
    I love the design and the colour combination, very nice! Agree with you though, the rose would've looked better OVER the black stripes. ;D
