I'm afraid I seem to be stuck deep in a black and red theme at the moment. Well, on my nails. I've had a black and red theme everywhere else for the last ten years or so! Decor. clothing, even my laptop, camera and Helmers are red. So I suppose it's actually surprising how few of my manicures are black and red, on balance!
I'm also very into studs at the moment. Again, it's surprising it's taken me this long!
I think it's obvious from this gradient that thermals have been having quite an influence on me lately! I would love a real red to black thermal, but this will do in the meantime. As per usual, I used Sally Hansen Right Said Red and W7 Black. It still looked a little plain, so I added some studs. I used 40 in total, and it's barely made a dent in the amount I have. I used to think they were sold in ludicrously high amounts, but now they seem just about right!
