Marc Jacobs Secret Love With Gold Roses

Hello Monday! Today I am wearing a recycle mani from the weekend. I survived about a day and a half wearing a plain creme :p but no more than that. Had to add something to it!
Anyway, the creme polish I'm wearing, as you can see from the title, is Secret Love, from Marc Jacobs. A glossy, opaque eggplant purple creme. It looks darker on the nail, almost blackened. Nice formula, I used 2 coats here. 

For the nail art. I stamped a rose image from Pueen Encore set plate SE03A using Mundo de Unas #17 (gold). For my middle and ring nails, I placed several pieces of striping tape in random, and quickly layered it with Max Factor Fantasy Fire, OPI gold top coat (The Man with The Golden Gun), OPI 18K White Gold & Silver top coat, and a matte top coat. I removed the tape right away, and just leave it like that. It has a bit of textured finish, but not too bad since all the gold flakes lay flat. I layered the thumb with the white gold top coat. 



Hope everyone has a good start of the week!

  8. When I first saw a picture of this online my jaw dropped and I immediately wanted to know which plate you used. I love everything about this manicure from the deep dark base color to the taped glitter and those gold roses are the icing on the cake.
