February's Nails Challenge - Red

Hello everyone!

As I've promised on Thursday, today I'm showing you my nails again, this time in a more elegant manicure - a black/red matte ombre. The theme was "red" but I thought it was too boring so I decided to try this look instead.


The manicure is part of February's Nail Challenge:


I only wore the manicure for a few [rainy] days because the matte top coat tends to shrink(?) the nail polish and even though I had sealed the free edge, it still looked weird. I think it might be because I didn't let the gradient dry before applying the top coat or just because my top coat isn't the best. -_-"



Oh, and another thing - did the mattifying top coat ever leave small white dots on your nails? Mine did this time and I couldn't cover them very well so you can still see them in the pics, if you look closely. Sorry.


I tried doing two versions of the ombre: one that went simply from black to red and another one, on my right hand, that went black-red-black. Unfortunately my camera didn't focus that well and the picture below is the only one that came out acceptable. 


The nail polishes I used this time are:
- Essence 46 Black is Back
- Avon Cherry Jubilee
- Oriflame London Red

Eu nu patesc asa cu top coatul matifiant,in schimb dupa doua zile isi pierde efectul si incepe sa fie lucios la varful unghiei!Pup.

Foarte eleganta si imi place ca este mata. Eu nu vad punctuletele albe, dar probabil nu este bun top coatul. Eu am de la Rimmel una de ani buni si sunt foarte multumita de ea!
