Black and Gold Crosshatch Nails

Today I decided to have a little fun with my nails and go for a black and gold design.  I decided to do a simple crosshatch pattern and I was pleased with the results.  I like how my nails look with this pattern and I have had a few compliments on them as well. Not bad for a days work.
Cue silly pose:

I used:

Boots No17 Strengthening Base Coat
Boots No17 Nail Polish in Nightshade
Gold Nail Art Pen
Seche Vite Top Coat

I applied my base coat, followed by 2 coats of the black (Nightshade).  It was taking a really long time to dry so at this point I applied a coat of Seche Vite top coat to speed things up.  I then applied the gold polish in the crosshatch pattern and another layer of Seche Vite.  I'm pleased to report that I have had no minor mishaps with my nails today and they are still as good as they were when I first applied.  I normally smear/smudge at least one of them lol

Tomorrow I am going swimming and hope that my nails can survive half an hour or so in the pool:)

What are you sporting on your nails today?
