Black Roses and Poison Apples: Stamped Nail Art Design

I told you a little while back that I was on a lace kick, but never finished showing you the designs that I created. Sorry about that! The previous design was demure, but this one is a goes a little more to the dark side, literally. I don’t know if you watch Nashville, but we’ve been catching up on episodes in Tivo and I had the song Scarlett sang about black roses in my head when I was working on this.

It’s been a little while since I’ve worn a thermal and when I saw this beauty from Black Cat Lacquer I couldn’t resist.

I started by applying 2 coats of Black Cat Lacquer Poison Apple over my basecoat. The jelly formula starts of sheer but builds easily. This thermal is a bright cherry red when warm and a deep oxblood red when cold and it transitions easily. Do you see the sparkle?? It’s the touch of scattered holo they added! I finished with a coat of HK Girl Fast Drying Topcoat.

Next I stamped 3 different patterns from Vivid Lacquer VL-032 on all of my fingers using Mundo de Unas Light Gold. I love that the designs Anni chose for this plate coordinate so well and that she provided full images of the 2 different lace patterns she used. So much potential for creativity with this plate!

Then I used Mundo de Unas Black to spread the rose branch design across my middle and ring fingers.

This was a fairly easy nail art design to do, but I felt it had so much impact from the amazing thermal and lace designs combined with black and gold.

Do you enjoy thermal polishes as much as I do? I think it’s so fun to find a different color on your nails each time you gaze at them.
