Minimalist Black and Gold

Since my nails are still relatively short, I decided to do an incredibly simple but striking mani! I think that vertical designs look really good on smaller nails (whereas they just tend to look silly or stretched out on long nails).

The inspiration for this came from Paulina’s Passions. I used a coarser gold glitter and a matte black, while she made the whole design glossy. I can’t turn down a glossy/matte contrast mani!

I’m really glad Zoya is releasing a matte jewel-tone collection for the holidays, but I do wish they would include a black! I already have a black matte (clearly!) but I find it to be my most useful matte by far, and it is unfortunate that the more well-respected polish brands haven’t made one to compensate for Mentality’s disaster!

Hope you enjoyed! This mani took 20 minutes, and 15 of those were waiting for the top coat over the gold to dry before I applied the tape. So, easy!
