I hadn't planned on doing nails for the Academy Awards but it just kinda fell into place that way. I was so excited for the Oscars this year though so I am really happy this worked out! I started off with three thin coats of OPI Love. Angel. Music. Baby which may be my new favorite gold polish. I will have swatches of that alone soon. Staring at it though and then looking through plates and stumbling upon my Vivid Lacquer plates, the idea really just hit me. I used Vivid Lacquer VL021 for all of my nails to create a black and gold hollywood movie themed mani. I stamped with Cult Nails Fetish which is a matte polish so I could keep a matte look without having to use any topcoat.
