My nails are depressingly short, because that's what happens when you break one nail and therefore you have to cut the other ones. And that makes me sad. Long story short, I've been wanting to do this for a while now.
I started off with a base coat and then added Orly's Close Your Eyes. Once that was relatively dry, I added some strips of black with NYC Black Lace Creme with a striping brush.
Then, with a dotting tool, I added some studs that I got from BornPretty store. Once that was on pretty well, I added the final layer of NYC Matte Me Crazy to give it a nice matte shine to it.
Now we start waiting for the nails to grow and see what we can come up with in the meantime.
