Le Rouge Et Le Noir

Do you know this novel by Stendhal? I read it a couple of times when I was in high school, and I just randomly remembered about this today when doing my nails. Firstly I wanted to try my new Zoya Andi (btw it's awesome!! The formula and application are flawless, and the colour is one nanoshade away from my ideal red) and in order to make smth interesting, I decided to play with a scotch tape. Here's the result:

Taking into account that it's my first tape mani, I'm satisfied. If I wasn't so lazy and applied the 2d coat of topcoat, the line between black and red would be smoother. And the last thing, for some reason my camera has an issue with red shades and never wants to reflect them correctly. So if someone is interested in Zoya Andi - you better find other swatches :)
