    Hi ladies, so its my aunts wedding in October and she's having a gothic themed wedding. I said I'd do her nails for her and she wants them to be gothic (on acrylics as her nails are short) and I have no idea of what to do! Does anyone have any photo ideas or general ideas? Thank you ❤

    OOOh goth! How fun! Usually with goth nails, I picture black lace over red or pearly colour, crosses, pearls, crowns, studs, roses (red and black).

    Black with red glitter, dark red with black crosses, maybe some Swarovski crystals. Or matt black with glossy black tips would look quite striking x

    Ahh thanks for the ideas I like the top one too! Any of you know where I can get matte black nail polish that looks so good!? Xx

    you could get a matte topcoat that will make any colour you have matte :) OPI also has a line of matte polishes.

    I can't seem to find anywhere with the china glaze one in stock 😪 looked on YouTube and that one seems the best x

    The essie one is one of my favourites. It's a flat matte finish, and dries quick. :)

    I use a matt topcoat and one of my most asked about designs is the matt black with glossy black tips, VERY popular and gorgeous!

    Chikafish, i have seen essie one online. Its available at boots so going to go tommorrow. So basically i put on any polish and use that as a top coat? Then for konad i can use it but no top coat on that right?

    You can make gelish matte by using a buffer GENTLY removing the shine off the top coat x

    Yes, you can apply base, color, then matte topcoat and it will give a matte finish to that color. Then you can konad over the matte nails (or freehand a design) using regular topcoat, a contrasting colour, or a sheer colour for an effect similar to the 3rd picture down on my initial reply post :)
