Fingerfoods Challenge: Gothic

The theme for this weeks Fingerfoods Buffet Challenge was Gothic.
Being a complete girly girl, I couldn't get any further from Gothic if I tried. Hence, I found this theme incredibly difficult!! I ended up basing my mani on Gothic Architecture after much Googling.
I'm not sure about the result... I like my thumb, reminds me of Alice in Wonderland! Not so keen on the others!

Excuse the sideways pictures, for some reason Blogger turned them when I uploaded.

I used Rimmel's Right Royal Red as the base colour, then freehanded the designs onto the nail using a Black Sharpie.
I've never used this Red polish before, but I really liked it! I love the pop of bright colour, which was achieved in just 1 coat. And I hadn't realised before that it's a gel finish polish, and it is super shiny! I just wish it had a better brush. I love the bigger, flat brushes most Rimmel polishes have and was disappointed this didn't have one. Nevermind!


  1. I like the red and the design is good for this theme well done :)

  2. I think you did a great job with your interpretation <3 I usually have the opposite problem from you: I'm really NOT a girly girl, so when there are really girly themes or colors to challenges, I feel strange wearing them!
