Ghetto Gothic Fab Nails (Lady Gaga nails?)
This is an awfully dark mani for summer....but oh, wait! I don't care :) I wanted to do a design based off a shirt I was wearing yesterday, even though it's pretty dark and ... ominous looking. Which is why I'm calling these my GOTHIC fabulous nails! Gothic because they're black, and fabulous because they have rhinestones on them! Oooh, shiny. I guess they could also be Lady Gaga nails :)
I started off with two coats of Ulta Little Black Dress, which is AWESOME! It has a little bit of a shimmer to it so it doesn't look so intimidating. I only had to do two coats of this, and I could've gotten away with one if I'd applied a thick coat. I highly recommend this one... it's like a girly black polish if that makes sense.
Then I stamped over it with Sally Hansen Black Pearl Chroma and plate m63. If you're lucky enough to have any of the Chrome polishes, they're excellent to stamp with. I used round, silver rhinestones on the ring fingers to make the crosses. I generally don't like rhinestones because they get stuck in my hair and I usually think it's hard to make them look good.
What do you all think? :)
Have a wonderful day,
