I got this pretty bottle of Catrice nail polish from their limited edition collection called Victorian poetry. I mean can you see the beautiful print on the bottle?! I wanted to make a manicure that is inspired by that design and idea - but somehow I ended up with something completely different ...
The Victorian style is always full of swirls and filigree, soft shapes and feminine designs. But I wanted to make a modern interpretation of it - same softness but with a dark and glam color scheme. And what is more modern and emanates strong energy then geometric patterns?
I know the nails don't look traditionally goth and Victorian, but I think the pattern still could be somewhere in the background of a opulent old house. I love it! And I don't think it clashes with the pattern on the bottle.
To make these nails I created a mix of nude polish and a glitter top coat. At the same time I created a decal with nail stamping. The stamp is made with black nail polish and I painted in the particles with gold. So simple but so gorgeous.
To make these nails I used Catrice Nobel nude (the bottle I am holding in my hand) and over it I added Orly Mirrorball for extra sparkle. The triangles are made with Cici & Sisi Geometry 01 stamping plate and Essence stamp me!black stamping polish. I painted them in with Kiko Gold.
