Goth Nails



I'm about as Goth as Betty White (but not quite as old!), but this past week, the FB AiS was Goth Nails. This is the mani I came up with.   


Started with a base of two coats of Manglaze Fuggen Ulgy and accent of Manglaze Hot Mess, three coats. 


Stamped using black Konad special polish and  Fab Ur Nails Red Wine. Image plates used were Hot Topic (skull on index, skull music notes on ring, stars on pinky), T48 (roses on middle), fauxnad E (single rose on index), SdP 76 (bats on thumb), SdP 77 (graveyard), SdP 19 (spider on pinky),  Konad Q1 (random silver stars - which were stamped with Nicole by OPI Give Me The First Dance).  Seems I forgot to jot down the cross plate, I'll update the post later.  (Edit:  cross on ring ringer is T07.)


I didn't do a great job stamping the index finger; of course, it's an image that must be stamped perfectly or its sooo out of place, but it was late when I did this and I couldn't remove the mis-stamp with some remover and do again as it was a matte polish and any attempt to remove it would have wrecked the polish underneath as there was no topcoat.  So I lived with it.  A crooked cross would have to do.

Topcoated with SV just before heading to bed as otherwise, I'm sure it would have been chipped by morning, lol!


This mani isn't something I'd wear everyday but it was fun for the challenge.  (Anyone just checking out the blog will be going how did she go from cute bees to Goth? lol!)  

Not terribly sure how *Goth* it is, but it was fun trying! 

Thanks for looking!

  4. I used to be a Goth in the 80s, all my friends wore black and had Mohawk hair dos-it was awesome, I had a shaved head like Sinead O connor. I thought I was bad ass! Sorry to be so late in commenting, I'm literally a week behind and 1000s of posts to read. I think back then, all we did was use a sharpie to have black nails! But I love your take on it! Would have called this a poseur mani!
