It serves as a stark contrast that makes the metallic hues truly pop, ensuring that each nail is a mini canvas for a Victorian-era inspired masterpiece. With the right combination of brassy golds, burnished coppers, and muted silvers, your nails will exude an air of sophisticated antiquity that's both fashionable and timeless.
