Today’s post is very much Gothic nail art. I was inspired by the new collection by Essence – the Dark Romance Collection! It has three gorgeous polishes. The one I’m using today is Essence Red Romance. It’s a dark, oxblood red polish that dries to a natural matte finish without a top coat. It really speaks to me for some reason! I decided it simply must have some sort of Goth stamping on top of it so I selected a design from Cici&sisi Plate 03. I used Konad Special Black as my stamping polish.
I actually used two designs from this plate, both in the bottom left corner. I used the half image for most of my nails, but the full sized image for my accent nail.
I love the look of the half image on the nails. It really gives it a lovely lacy kind of look.
