I wanted something really fresh and new to start 2013 with nail wise, so I decided to try this simple but effective design. This was all over the Chanel catwalk, with pastel pinks and metallics, but I've switched it up a little and put my own darker, wintry spin on it.
I used OPI's 'Live & Let Die' from the 007 Skyfall collection, which is a gorgeous bluey-black with a slight gold shimmer to it. I then painted Revlon's Gold Coin over the top leaving gaps near the cuticle and the edges of the nail. I think it looks quite art deco with the colour scheme, but I'm really happy with it! The gold shakes things up a bit and makes a gorgeous contrast with the black. You could try this with millions of different colour combinations, it would look good with silver and navy too!
Have you tried anything new with your nails to kick off the new year?
