A black manicure with lots of sparkle

Hello everyone ^_^/

how are you today?
Just a few days now left for Christmas, weeeeee I'm so excited.
Today I will share a black manicure with a twist. I was inspired to do this by various nail art designs that I saw on Japanese nail magazines. It can be worn for the festive season too.

Here is what you will need for this manicure.

Essence Fatal
BB Couture Spellbound (from my awesome Overall Beauty haul that I will be posting about soon)
Zoya Nova
silver spangles in various sizes
Seche Vite top coat

I painted all the fingers except one on each hand black. Then the two accent fingers that I chose were painted with Spellbound and then Nova. Added the spangles on the black nails forming various lines, topped with Seche and done.

I was so happy with this one that I didn't want to take it off. And as you can see when the light hits it, it's a really sparkly and eye catching manicure! I think I might be doing something similar for New Year's, but with different colours ^_^


  1. i love this one, especially with some spangles!

  2. woo! talk about lots of sparkle! :) so gorgeous!

  3. Those spangles are like tiny mirrors...super bling!!

  4. Woo this is so blingy! Love it =) The colours go so well together and glitter is always awesome. Japanese nail magazines are so great for inspiration!

  5. The spangles really make it perfect! *-*

    @Freshie it was even shinier in real life. The photo couldn't capture it well.

  7. @Kayleigh you are right! They reflect the light and create a super shine effect.
