NOTD: Bobbi Brown Old Hollywood Ladybird

I'm useless at nail art.  Polka dots I can just about do, even if they don't look as neat and tidy as when Leanne does them.  Polka dots on one nail is about as much attention span as I have.  So here we have it, a Bobbi Brown ladybird style feature nail thingy.

The colours used here are Tuxedo Black and Siren Red from Bobbi's Old Hollywood Christmas collection.  Siren Red is a pretty standard red cream, but Tuxedo Black is a bit unusual - it's black, but it somehow doesn't look as harsh as a black.  Perhaps it's a really dark grey?  Perhaps it's a smoky black?  I dunno.  Either way, it's a lot less BLACK than black usually is.

These colours applied easily, and were incredibly shiny before I applied a bit of topcoat.  This manicure lasted around four days before the tipwear became obvious, and gathered a few perplexed looks from my male colleagues in meetings.  Lovely.
