Maid Marian nails

 So I originally had a Halloween themed manicure on and totally realized that it would not match my Halloween costume (I went as Maid Marion and my husband was Robin Hood). So I decided to redo my nails right away. I apologize for the crappy pictures but it's been dark and rainy today so my lighting wasn't so good.

 I did a base of Sinful Colors Black on Black and then put a coat of an unlabeled slightly maroon red over the top to make a darker color. The swirls are done with Revlon Gold Coin (I love this color).

Here's a picture with flash, ugh.

My favorite nail that I did was my pinky.

 I tried to do a swirly design with the gold to mimic Medieval/Renaissance tapestry. I tried to do a heart swirly design on my index finger, but that was a total fail.

All in all, I'm still working on getting the hang of nail art. My clean-up isn't the best yet either. Part of the problem with both of these is that I need nail art brushes (I have 1, but I could use better ones), dotting tools, and a better cleanup brush (mine aren't stiff enough).
