Antique Almonds

With the new almond shape it reminds me of the old fashioned manicures. So I did a vintage manicure on top of Iced Coffee. I wanted to stick to the traditional colors of nude and red.
I couldn't help but use Cult Nails Quench seeing as how Maria inspired this shape to begin with!
 This is WITHOUT a topcoat! That's right Maria's formula is that shiny and wonderful all on it's own. *Applause*
 I used hole reinforcers to mask off the half moons. Then two coats of Cult Nails Quench.
I like the overall look of this vintage manicure with the almond shape. I just don't care for how it looks on my hands.

  4. I am wearing the same mani & that's exactly how I did it! WAHOO! Love Quench with this mani! This makes me want to trim my talons down! I know I need to, I just haven't had my nails this long in forever, so I am putting it off!

  6. Yeah guys, hole reinforcers are great because the curve is much smaller than French tip guides. Perfect fit for half moons!
