Black & Gold Egyptian Pyramids

Today's mani was inspired by Jane's Pyramid manis. I spent the best part of an hour trying to figure out how she created a 3 tier pyramid without having to use 4 strips of tape simultaneously, but in the end I gave up! All I could come up with was a 2 tier pyramid!

Polishes used were Barry M Black and Miss Sporty Gold Backstage. I really like the contrast between Black & Gold and I love doing tape manis but I need a little bit more practice to get my angles right!

  2. i didnt think the gold would transfer so well onto the nail. it looks really watery in the bottle. miss sporty is an amazing brand though. i wish people would use them more often.

  3. These are so cute and fierce! I love chevrons and black and gold is a classic color combination. I'll also make a tutorial for the pyramid tips in the near future btw, so I'll explain and show how to make them then ;-)
