It feels like it’s been FOREVER since I’ve joined in on the weekly challenge that Sam over at FingerFood Nails is hosting! And I suppose it has…… But I’m back, at least for this week! And the theme of the week is “Gothic”. I’ll be honest, I was a total art kid in high school, but I never really got into the “goth” look, so this is a new look and style for me, and most certainly a challenge. This is what I came up with:
I’m actually quite pleased with how they turned out. There’s almost a leathery look to the nails in person that didn’t quite get picked up on the camera.
For this look, I used Kleancolor #6 “Charcoal” (the metallic base), paired with Kleancolor #189 “Red-Hot” (chunky glitter) mixed with Orly #40721 “Star Spangled” all topped with a matte finish.
At the last minute I wanted to add a touch more, and decided to put black dots with black rhinestones in a light flourish type design. In my mind I was thinking about the old Victorian iron gates with their swirls and designs, and tried to play on that a little. If you are interested in joining in on future challenges, these are the prompts:
And of course, I encourage you to join in the Facebook group with all of the other ladies participating in the challenge.
See all of the great looks in this week’s challenge:
