People often call me cute. That is probably because I’m quite small, because I wear a lot of pink and maybe also because some people think I’m younger than I really am. Sometimes I like being cute, but I often want to be seen as someone mature, not only as cute (which is an adjective that makes me often feel like a six year old child). To compensate my quite colourful outfits and the previous things, I like having black nails. They are mature, and they look classy in combination with a not completely black outfit (otherwise I feel like a gothic ;)). Here are two of my favourite black manicures. (Note: I took those pictures last week, when the weather was still rainy. I prefer colourful nails in summer.)
The first one is a matt manicure, Long Lasting Nailpolish Matt 821 from Hema, that looks very nice. I love the matt effect, which, I think, gives it even a more stylish look. The polish lasts up to five days, but you better wear two layers so that the colour is really black and not black see through or something like that.
The NYC Expert Last Nail Polish 119 City Black out (gosh what a long name :)) has a really good brush and is just awesome! Of course the colour is great (black is black, right?), it lasts long and is easily removed. To add some sparkle to it, I used the Hema Glitter Topcoat 26 on one finger each hand. It still looks stylish because it’s black, but has a glamourous touch, which really does it for me. I was really sad when I had to remove this manicure…
Do you like black manicures? And do you wear them for the same reasons as I do, or for others? I’d like to know :).
Lots of Love,
