Black and Gold Art Deco Nails

Today I wore my gorgeous gold Jade Holo to work - I love how this gold looks!  Tonight, inspired by the numerous black and gold tape manis I've seen recently on a few blogs (everyone seems to be doing Great Gatsby nails recently!) I had a play with my striping tape, and came up with these, using my go-to Rimmel Black Out.

Initially I was going to do different designs on each finger, then the middle finger was meant to be an accent, but afterwards I wished I'd done the same design on each one. Oh well!

I'm still really happy with how these turned out! I've never done anything so intricate before, and while there are one or two places where something splodged a bit, they're mostly not that visible, so I'm pretty chuffed! Some of the black lines aren't quite the same width apart, but that's also fairly minor I suppose.

I love the Jade Holo by the way - look at it on its own!

What do you think?


  1. Love the gold you've used, such a great polish! And your nails are such a good length. Mine keep breaking :( xx

    1. Thanks! Mine aren't normally this long, but somehow they've just kept growing and growing this month...

  2. Very theatrical, I love them!

    1. Thanks! I doubt I could do my right hand to match, but maybe next time!

  3. RIGHT THEN. I might need some striping tape once my ridiculously snapped nail grows back. So neat!

  4. They're absolutely fabulous!

  5. Gorge very Art Deco!


I absolutely love comments! But please don't spam me with links to your sales website here!.
