Art Deco burgundy and gold stripes

Today's post I feel pretty meh about, mainly because of the way the photos turned out. Experimenting with new DSL-R settings... and clearly not winning.

The design is pretty simple and straightforward, executed with three different polishes and striping tape. I was following Nail It Magazine's themed call-out for 'Art Deco' inspired mani submissions - I submitted this design along with another that will be posted in due time. Nail It is inviting submissions up until June 6th. Those chosen will appear in the September/October edition. I don't think this one is a winner mainly because of the photo quality, but I need to keep f**king up to learn which settings are just NO.

The only thing great about this shot is A England's Briarwood. Mmmm there is a heaven. 

Polishes used:
- Quo by Orly 'Filthy rich' (metallic gold)
- OPI 'I sing in color' (dark burgundy creme)
- A England 'Briarwood' (burgundy/red holo - my most fav AE polish ever.)


  1. Briarwood is a wonderful polish indeed and I love the design you made, the lines are perfect!

    1. I know I just die for Briarwood!! These photos don't even do it justice, it is just spectacular. Thanks so much, I hope they are straight, because I used striping tape :p

  2. Really is very beautiful! I have tried many times and failed too much! Do you have any secrets?

  3. I have had a lot of harvest after watching this article from you! I feel it interesting, your post gave me a new perspective! I have read many other articles about the same topic, but your article convinced me! I hope you continue to have high quality articles like this to share with veryone!
