FingerFood's Theme Buffet / Neverending Pile Challenge: Boutique gothic

Hi folks! It's time once again for a challenge double-up! FingerFood's theme this week is gothic, and the Neverending Pile Challenge for today is boutique. I had to check what counts as boutique polish--apparently it's an indie company that produces its polish in a lab rather than by hand-mixing (so like A England, Rescue Beauty, etc.). I actually own four A Englands and I've never worn any of them, even though they're gorgeous, so I grabbed two of them for today's mani!

I started with a base of A England Beauty Never Fails and did some freehand gothic-style vines using Sleeping Palace. The pattern turned out more subtle than I would have liked, but it kinda reminds me of a man's waistcoat fabric from a period movie. Anyone else see it?

Total untrieds tried: 17


  1. This is nice! Love the stamping.

  2. good choice of colors for this theme you did great :)

  3. Wow. That A England is insanely gorgeous!

  4. I love everything about you manicure ! So pretty !

  5. I can definitely see the men's waistcoat vibe.. and it looks amazing.

    I loved the choice of colors. I have Beauty Never Fails, but haven't had a chance to try it out yet. This is definitely making me want to give it a go
