I named this royal because that is what I thought of when I saw how the colors came together. I think the maroon and gold really characterize this look.
Here’s what I used:
- Nicole by OPI – Shoot for the Maroon
- LA Colors Striping Polish (Gold Glitter, Black, White)
- Ruby Kisses French White **for the dots
- Reinforcement labels for the french tip **not pictured
Step 1: Stick on reinforcement labels to act as a guide for the french tip.
I personally do not like these. The shape is too circular and it does not fit the shape of my nails well at all. Also, it didn’t form a good enough seal so some polish got below the guide–this could be user error.
Step 2: Add the french tip
Step 3: Add black stripes, white, and gold stripes.
Step 4: Add dots.
Finished look. This was taken the next day in natural light.
