Black and White Challenge Day 5: Color base with Black

I'm so excited to post today's nail art! For Day 5 of the Black and White Challenge - Color base with Black, I've created some nail art inspired by the One Ring from The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. I was going to wait to do this for the release of The Hobbit which I thought must be some time soon but it's not until December!
This nail art was first posted on Billy the Brime's Tumblr and couldn't wait to give it a go myself. Allison's mani is more accurate to the original source material than mine and fair play to the girl, dang that inscription is fiddly!

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them
One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

I used Barry M Gold Foil as my base colour and black acrylic paint with a nail art brush for the details.
