YSL-Inspired Tuxedo Nails

Just a quick post to show you how easy it is to dupe the YSL tuxedo manicure seen over on this post on - the YSL matte & gloss set is coming in at €35, but if you're not in a position to get your hands on one, this is the look I came up with using the Essence Matte Topcoat, Essence Black is Black, and Essence French Manicure Tip Guides. Obvs, my nails aren't as long and glam as the woman in the YSL ad, but you get the general idea.

Paint your nails with the black polish, wait for it to dry, then place a tip guide over the top and paint the remainder of the nail with the matte polish. Remove the tip, et voilà! Swanky nails for less than a fiver. 

Happy Sunday,
