Fierce French

The black part in this picture reminds me of the M of Maroon 5, love them! ^^

Hello everyone! In my last post I used Orly Solid Gold in a fifty-fifty tape mani. I liked Solid Gold so much that I prepared two more looks with it and today's semi-nude look is one of them. I first started with a zigzag in black (tutorial here) and when that was dry I added the gold chevrons with Solid Gold. It dries with a matte finish as you could see in my last post, but this time I went for glossy by adding topcoat. I'm not sure which finish I like most - the edgy matte one or the sparkly glossy one. They're both so cool! :-) What do you think? Thanks for reading!

  8. Wow, that Orly is a total stunner, and it looks gorgeous matte or shining! LOVE the bold tips with the gold and black together too. I seriously need to get out my tape and start playing some more!

  10. Matte for me hands down! Suddenly I'm really feeling matte's and suede finishes a lot these days especially with all of the exploding glitter trends. I need to acquire this color but Illamasqua's recent collection is next up on my store brands to purchase ;) I will have to live vicariously through you for a while yet!

    1. Hi there! ^^ For my tape manis, all I use is regular stationery tape. But you might prefer something else, so just experiment with different sorts of tape to figure out what works best for you. Important is that it's flexible enough and that it doesn't leave any residue afterwards.
