I’m writing this quickly before my husband and I go out — it’s our wedding anniversary today, as well as V-day — and I’ve just finished scoffing a slice of the most perfect Black Forest cake made by a German master baker. Oh lord this cake. And the best thing is I’ve got several days’ worth left in the fridge.
On Sunday I had a friend over to do her nails, and this is what we ended up with. She wanted a more classic mani with a twist, while I wanted to use my matte top coat and went for something with an industrial feel.
Me: base coat of Orly Top 2 Bottom; 2 coats China Glaze Some Like it Haute; taped off 1 coat of China Glaze Long Kiss (it’s quite opaque so 1 coat was fine); sealing coat of Orly Top 2 Bottom (matte polish directly on top of a design can smudge so seal with a regular top coat first, the end result will be no less matte); 1 coat China Glaze Matte Magic.
