Here is a nail look that I have been loving, matte ivory nails. I find white a bit stark but a bone/ivory hue I think looks gorgeous. I added the matte top coat just to shake things up a bit, and I must say I really like it, plus it works really well on me to stop chipping. These nails were done yesterday and normally I would have some lovely chips thanks to the washing up and having flaky nails in general. My only tip is, keep it short and sweet, in my opinion white/ivory nails do not look good on long, claw-like talons. Oh an the roses as the background? A lovely bouquet I received from my boyfriend for our 3 year anniversary, what a sweetie eh?
