Black on Black Matte Nails French Tip






   model - Aria     photos - Zorian   

I was Google ing  around Halloween,  for black polish and I saw how beautiful the black matte polishes looked.  But,  most bloggers said,  the mattes all seemed to chip easily and did not wear well.   Question,  What chips first on Nails,  Answer, the tip. 
So, Tip them!   Sally to the rescue.  Sally Hanson hard as what?  Nails. 

Aria and I found, Zoya Matte Velvet lacquer, Dovima/Mat  ZP499, for the black matte.
Apply,  3-4 coats with no base coat underneath.  The Zoya matte dries very quickly.  
With a steady hand, tip the Nails,  (one coat) of Sally Hansen’s. Black Heart 880. 
No top coat, it will kill the matte finish of the matte.    Voila!  Black on Black, Sexiness!

Testing out our new mani, we decided to try a place called “Chill”.  Chill and Steam are 2  restaurants, with separate entrances,  in one spot.  Steam,  is a  coffee shop.  Chill, is a tapas Restaurant.  We were thirsty and hungry, so we decided to to have Cappuccinos and desert . . . . . Bananas Foster to be precise. 
“Bananas Foster”,  Bananas flambeed in spiced rum, real butter, and dark brown sugar, laid  over a perfect crape, with ice cream drizzled over warm bananas.     Mmmmmmm.
Unbelievable!

I have always been a fan of black nails. I think that black is a great color for the hands. It gives an edgy look to any outfit.
