A few weeks ago, when “Lacke in Farbe … und Bunt!” was calling for a black manicure, I also toyed with this idea, and now finally found the time to do it:
I wanted a look with three different finishes, unfortunately, the expected leather-y texture from “black to the roots” – being dubbed “the rough” – didn’t turn out so well. Or not at all, actually. If you look very closely, you might see it on the picture, but in real life it doesn’t look much different from the stripe with the matte topcoat.
Next time, I will use KIKOs black textured polish, which thanks to a friend (thanks, Micha :-* ) I finally have. 🙂
Base coat: essie Nourish Me
Main color: essence colour & go 144 black is back
Top Coat: Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat
