I'd been wanting to try the framed nail look for quite a while now, and I finally got around to doing it last week!
The colour scheme was inspired by a few of the ballet company dancers' Yumiko leotards; two of them have leotards in this dark berry colour with faded lilac trim, and I love those shades together!
I started with two coats of LaCC 1972, and freehanded the frames with OPI Casino Royale. I decided to add the line down the middle when I was really not liking how the frame looked, and it did make it a bit better. Unfortunately I just wasn't a fan of this look, personally. I've loved photos of it on other's nails, but it just didn't look great on mine.
Have you ever tried a technique that you loved on someone else's nails, only to have it fall flat on your own? Let me know in the comments!
