Creative musings in bright colors

Darkened Doorway

This is based on an internet design. Their version was elegant and bright, so of course I had to change it up and make it dark and mysterious. I’ve had enough of rainbows this week!


Most of my nails are two wonderful coats of matte black. The studs are actually Born Pretty Store studs that I covered with my military green polish and stuck on.


My accent nail and thumb are two coats of green with black creme free-handed over them. I think I could have done a better job with the swirls, but it is what it is. I matted the design for consistency…and because I wanted to see what this green looked like matted! Stunning.



  • Black matte: Mentality – Rascal
  • Black creme: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
  • Green: Cult Nails – In A Trance


This was a fast and easy mani, and I have to say I like it. It might not be as elegant as the original, and the designs don’t stand out as much. But it is still awesome!

  1. Yes, “awesome,” and very wearable in an urban environment! You make doing this sound like a lot of fun for procrastinators; TX.

  2. I’m not a fan of matte polishes, but you did a fantastic job with this mani. It’s amazing!
