Nails of the Month: Razor Sharp!

Updated: May 28, 2018

Simple but striking, this look I created for one of my clients recently combines bold colour and contrasting texture to achieve its impact.

Anyone who rocks their stiletto nails knows - the questions are endless! People tend to be very intrigued by our eye-catching claws and are curious about what it's like to live with them.

This client was inspired by the sorts of questions she gets. Everyone wanted to know if she ever cuts herself.

She decided to have a little fun with that!

The base is black, finished off with missu's velvety matte top coat. Then I hand-painted a 'drip' look in bright red on the tips and topped that with missu's high gloss top coat.

The final effect is 3D and graphic, the red raised against the surface of the nail, shiny against the matte flatness of the black.

Now when people ask if she ever cuts herself - she can hold up her hand and say: "you tell me!"
