BEAUTY | Subtle Noir French Manicure & Chain Ring

Photobucket

A subtle version of a french manicure in black. Instead of the usual nude and white, I used black nailpolish from Rimmel and a matte topcoat from Essie. ´A delicate silver chain necklace is wrapped around my finger and is worn as a ring.

I don't normally like matte nailpolish that much but this is gorgeous!

Especially with your ring, it looks like it is something from Vogue and you could wear it to a formal soiree~

I am in love with this nail design

Love it! I have a Rimmel matte topcoat that I'm addicted to also, the possibilities of play are endless! This looks great, and I love the little chain as a ring. Doesn't it fall off though? Seriously?
