For New Year's Eve I always feel black and silver is a great combination and I have fallen in love with the Silver polish from my Ciate calendar "Fit for a Queen", the silver is so pigmented and shiny, it's great.
As always below I have a step by step guide of how I created these.
So to begin I put two coats of Fit for a Queen onto my nails. On my index and ring finger I roughly painted out a triangle shape to help with the next step.
I then took a small clean up brush with some acetone and carefully took away the silver polish from the index and ring finger, as to create a larger v-shape. I took a little too much off of my index finger here. Everyso often you will need to wipes off the brush as it will become ineffective. I also suggest drying the nail off slightly by dapping the parts with nail polish remover with a dry cotton bud, to avoid smudging later.
During the next step, I took a thin striping brush and painted along the v-shape I had just created. I also outlined by pinkie nail in the same black polish.
Creating the next shape takes a lot of time. To begin I dipped a cotton bud in nail polish remover to create a 'hole' in the middle of my nail.
