What's on my nails Wednesday Week 3


      Black and Gold Inverted French Manicure Nail Art
I'm really enjoying this series, it's forcing me to look after my nails and to be abit more experimental with my nails, which otherwise I wouldn't be. 

This week, I've gone back to my favorite combo of black and gold, not really seasonal appropriate, but to be fair, the suns gone back in & the scarves have come back out! 

I've been addicted to looking at nail designs on Pinterest lately, and I saw something really similar to this, so I thought I'd give it a try. I really like designs that focus on the cuticle, inverted French nails I think they're called? I'm definitely going to be trying out some more designs like this, maybe with a softer, rounder touch. 
        Leighton Denny Maneater Polish, Ciate Sand Dune Polish Nail Art

To get this look, I used a Ciate mini in Sand Dune (RRP £9). I don't have much of this left, and it's one of my favourite golds, so I used this sparingly, only where I knew it would appear under the black. It's got a gorgeous metallic shimmer to it, and you can get this easily with one coat, but I like to build the colour up with two. 

The black I used was the Leighton Denny Polish I got in a Birchbox, in the shade of Maneater. I adore this black. It is so glossy, opaque in one coat, and really long lasting.  It's exactly what I've been looking for! I did the design freehand because I couldn't be bothered faffing to be honest, but I don't think it looks all that bad. It was easily achieved in one coat, but doing my right hand was hard! 

What do you think of the design? 

Have you tried these polishes?
