NOTM: Royal Nail Art

I named this royal because that is what I thought of when I saw how the colors came together. I think the maroon and gold really characterize this look.

Here's what I used:
  • Nicole by OPI - Shoot for the Maroon
  • LA Colors Striping Polish (Gold Glitter, Black, White)
  • Ruby Kisses French White **for the dots
  • Reinforcement labels for the french tip **not pictured


Step 1: Stick on reinforcement labels to act as a guide for the french tip.


I personally do not like these. The shape is too circular and it does not fit the shape of my nails well at all. Also, it didn't form a good enough seal so some polish got below the guide--this could be user error.

Step 2: Add the french tip


Step 3: Add black stripes, white, and gold stripes.




Step 4: Add dots.


Finished look. This was taken the next day in natural light.
