Leather Corsets

I love the result of this manicure. It was inspired by a celebrated third year anniversary with my girlfriends. The traditional gift for three years is leather and I thought this was an excellent way to represent it!




I painted three coats of Zoya Skye and then added the black corset sides and ties with Sally Hanson Complete Salon Manicure in Midnight in NY. I dotted China Glaze Millennium for the rivets and used one coat of CND Super Shiney to seal the manicure before applying Essie Matte About You (I know it seems contradictory to paint shiny then matte, but I've found that Matte About You causes some bleeding or running in manicures and a top coat protects from that...).
