Dark Romance!

Well, just a quick post tonight gang! For some reason I am on a black polish kick lately! I can honestly say, black is one of my favorite colors! And look how pretty (and even understated) black is!

But then, of course, black is also dramatic! I was inspired to play with the black after reading Mary's "Dark Romance" at She writes: Lately I've found myself gravitating toward the idea of a Gothic love story. I've fallen prey to the hit vampire series True Blood, and I'm looking forward to the upcoming sequel to Twilight, a movie series depicting the notion of a forbidden dark love. There's just something mysterious about an unattainable, slightly supernatural romance: am I right, ladies? If you're drawn to a darker aesthetic, I think you might like our Steampunk and Noir style guide.
Without further ado, I bring you my Etsyfied interpretation of a dark romance.

Wow... she's quite the writer, and we all know how much I LOVE Twilight! After reading that I found myself running for my Color Club Black polish (my absolute favorite black nail polish). For the top pic, I used the IMN Northern Lights topcoat for the sparkle with Konad plate M56. For the lower pic I used China Glaze OMG with Fauxnad plate K04 and Seche Vite topcoat. Both of them turned out GORGEOUS and now I suddenly can't wait for Halloween to get here! HAHAHA! Oh, and by the way, be sure to click on the links for Etsy... it's one of my new favorite online stores. I love anything hand made and they sell EVERYTHING hand made! Maybe you all can find a little dark romance too!
