After a lovely weekend of camping on the California Coast at Costanoa KOA my nails were tore up (literally I tore a couple nails) so I decided to just chop them all off. Even though they’re nubbins right now that doesn’t mean they can’t be cute!I have to say there is something strangely comforting about wearing black and blood red nails. I think because it harkens back to my childhood days when my sister was goth and Elvira was on late night. Black nails were in 20 years ago and 20 years ago was a good time for me!
I used a fine paint brush and my homemade dotting tools to accomplish the designs and I think this design has a lot of versatility; you could just do the face and paint the rest of your nails black or red for a simpler version.
- Seche Vite Base Coat
- Sally Hansen Xtremewear Black Out for the black base
