Metal and Black Nails

So many ideas came to mind when Beauty Heaven chose the theme black and metallic for their nail comp. It conjures up so many wonderful combinations and designs. I knew I wanted to incorporate silver, gold and black. Water marbling did come to mind, these colours would look amazing done well, hmmmm, the done well part is the bit I struggle with, so I soon forgot that idea. 

LA Color Craze Live
I began the mani with LA Colors Color Craze "Live". Such a beautiful chrome silver.

French Manicure Stickers
I used french manicure stickers to create the silver stripe that I wanted.

Orly Liquid Vinyl and Milani 3d Holographic 510
On my tips I painted Orly "Liquid Vinyl". Then used Milani 3D Holographic shade "510". Whilst the polish was still wet, I quickly removed the stickers.
