Nails of the Day: Dark and Metallic French Manicure

Remember my disaster of a manicure earlier this month? I used a pink and blue nail polish to make an alternating French manicure and…I thought it was terrible.

Well, I felt I needed to redeem myself. I really can make an awesome manicure! I promise!

This time, I came up with a dark and metallic French manicure that I absolutely loved.

I used the Layla Gel Effect Nail Polish in Extravagant from last week for the nice deep blood red color. Then, I used butter LONDON nail polish in Bobby Dazzler for the nice chrome tips.

I love it. Redemption!

And, since I’ve been playing with Kiss nail stickers recently, I added one to my thumbs as well.

It still looks awesome.

So, do you think I redeemed myself after that ‘90s nail disaster of a few weeks ago?

  1. So pretty! The colours go well together and the flowers are such a cute touch!

  2. Aw, those definitely weren’t that bad. These I LOVE though, the color combo is unexpected but so perfect.
