What does that all have to do with the manicure? Well since I have been getting into makeup I have been lurking a lot of makeup accounts. Some of these artists are soooooooo creative and I love looking at their work. Even though they sometimes do crazy stuff that I could never do on my own face, I can still use it and translate it to my nails. Like today, I have this manicure inspired by makeup artist Alene Filippova. This look caught my eye immediately when I scrolled past. I just had to put it on my nails :)
For my nails I started off with a black base, then I top coated it. I then added tape down the centre, and with a fan brush, brushed on the gold(Which is a nameless Dior). Once I removed the tape I top coated it again, put another strip of tape down the centre, and with the fan brush added the red(Revlon Red Carpet). Finally I top coated the whole thing. I did it with and without matte topcoat. I think I like it better shiny as the matte dulled the red.
So tell me. Do you like the makeup? What are some of your favourite products?
