Haemo-Golden

…the life blood of a good manicure.

Awesome Fall look. I finally surrendered, and got nude. I did fight it for a while, and finally gave in- and it is GLORIOUS.

For my first state at nude; a little bit of vampy blood red and gold offset this manicure beautifully.

Ideally, you want to have high contrast base colour and a metallic gradated pattern – I chose gold metallic as it kind of melts into the nude tone. Also, you can experiment with the pattern, interlocking geometric triangles, love-hearts, skulls etc.

The gradated patterns should be from the nail bed and below as a mocked French Manicure.

This look is super adaptable across age groups, my Mother was really into this look. *Warning* with the amount of sparkle of my talons, I am forever doing the hand-stare-zone-out thing…

...wait, What?

…wait, What?

Fabulous, x

So what you think, Darling?

Share your experiences with tone contrast and gradated patterns, which one do you favour?
