Dior Inspired French Manicure

Needless to say, this tutorial was inspired by the beautiful Yves Saint Laurent Le Smoking Manicure Couture Terriblement Noir advertisement. Though, that manicure actually uses 2 shades of the same colour, but different finishes. It’s an interesting take on an old manicure.

I purchased the matte version of Russian Navy by OPI a year ago and I absolutely hate the way it looks and wears on my nails. When I saw the Dior advertisement in the Bay, I thought it would be the perfect way for me to wear the awful lacquer. After all, OPI is expensive and it’s a shame to see that money go to waste.

I think using silver on the tips rather than a shiney navy or black is much more festive and appropriate for this time of year. For this manicure, I used Designer.. De Better from the OPI Muppets Collection for the tips.

I filmed a tutorial for this look:

Let me know what you’ll be wearing on your nails for the Holidays.
