I went to see Sex And The City 2 this week, I bloomin loved it!
So glam, total escapism and fabulous outfits!
I couldn't help but notice the nails the girls were sporting, particularly Samantha. She has some amazing falsies adorned with crystals and jewels and I spotted a bit of Minx in there too.
One manicure that really stood out for me was in a scene when they were at dinner in the hotel.
Samantha had black nails with a stunning shiny chrome gold moon at the bottom.
I have tried to re-create that look!
I hope you can make it out, I couldn't get it to photograph well, click the picture and it will be bigger.
I applied Orly's Luxe all over the nail, wait for it to dry properly.
Then with a steady hand apply two coats of a black polish, I used Chanel's Black Satin, a little higher than you would normally to show off the gold band at the bottom. Take your time here, you don't want to mess up the gold coat.
Then apply a high gloss top coat, I used Nails Inc Albert Bridge.
I really love it! The gold catches the light subtly enough to notice its not just a black nail.
If I do it again, I may leave a thicker band of gold at the bottom as I love the flash of gold so much!
What do you think, will you give it a go?
