I did today's manicure at the request of a co-worker who asked me to do black nails. I guess she didn't notice that I have done black nails several times already. Since my last nails were mostly white, I thought, why not. I combined it with a design I wanted to do for ages: corset nails.
I used my go-to black polish p2 eternal and mattified it with essie matte about you. On my ring finger, I used p2 scandal, a pretty scarlet red. The black and white for the corset is acrylic paint.
scandal is one of my oldest p2 polishes, a red! I never really wore red until now. Haha. Anyway, I noticed that p2 reused the name "scandal" for a new shade last year. The new scandal is a bright pink. But I prefer my scarlet red version ;)
For this manicure, though, I think that scandal was too dark. The contrast is not strong enough for my liking, but I still like it somehow. I definitely like matte black!
