Simple matte black tri-fold

Here's a simple mani that was done in November of 2013. Matte black has been a trend over the last year for all sorts of things, including sunglasses, car wraps, and - you guessed it - nails!

At the time I was using a mattifier that wasn't really all that good (seems to be an obscure brand called Fing'rs paints), so the black could have been even matter (did I just make up a word?).

A simple tri-fold was painted over the mattified black using metallic gold and red as contrast. No top coat was applied after this step. As you can tell no tape was used; the tips were freehanded using the original brushes that come with each polish.

Polishes used:
- Quo 'Filthy rich' (gold)
- A England 'Briar rose' (red)
- Nails inc. 'Black taxi' (clearly I need a new black polish...)
- Fing'rs matte top coat (not pictured)
