Black and Gold Baroque Nails

Today’s design is a lovely black and gold baroque/rococo swirl that I put together because I thought the color combination would look nice.

I started by painting my nails with Aimeili Gel Polish in 093 My Fantasy Gold. This polish is a yellow jelly formula with lots of gold glitter flakes. This color has surprisingly good coverage, so it only took 2 coats to get the opacity shown below.


Disclaimer: This polish photographed more orange than the actual color, but I couldn’t fix the tint without wildly making my skin tone look totally off. I would say My Fantasy Gold is more of a yellow marigold shade.


For the swirls and arabesques, I used the BP-79 plate from Born Pretty Store.


I used portions of the lower right hand quadrant of the plate along with Ya Qin An stamping polish in Black to create the pretty design below.


Notice how well even the little dots in the leaves get transferred! I’m amazed that you can get such a high level of detail with stamping.

The stamping was sealed with a gel top coat from UR Sugar for a perfect finish. It’s a relief to know that my design won’t smear when using a gel top coat!


Hope you enjoyed this mani! Happy polishing!
