red carpet nailsDay 25 – Red Carpet nails

With the awards season here, I couldn’t resist creating a manicure that pays homage to the opulence of the red carpet.. Red carpet style is all about sophistication and balance (or should be!). The designer frocks are so fabulous that often just one piece of statement jewellery is more than enough to trasnform evening look into a red carpet worthy ensemble.

When choosing the colours for this manicure, naturally I opted for red as the the main colour. To take the red carpet nails look further than just our usual red nails, I added complimentary dark cherry, nude and black colours. I arranged them so that the nude becomes an accent nail and other colours help focus attention to it. The gold embellishment on the nude accent nail represents the statement jewellery.

    I know this would still look great with a shiny finish but… matte just makes it so fabulously elegant, I can’t understand how some people still frown upon it! ;)
    The shades you use are so nicely put together! I’m just not sure about the beads – with me, they have this annoying tendency to either loose their colour when I topcoat them or to fall off my nails after one hour or two hours at the most :/
    Any advice or is it just the way they work – pretty for pictures and that’s all? :)

      The only way to secure beads is to dab gently some top coat over them. Painting over them is a big no no, you’ll loose all the colour. As for longevity, let’s put it this way – beads are not for active people. However, if you’re extremely accurate with your manicure you can get a day or two. Personally I only do beads for evening. Plus, at the end of the day you can always take them them off and re-do one nail just with a polish.

        hahah – big no-no for active people indeed! :)
        I also tend to use this just for ‘display’, aka special occasions that won’t last more than a couple of hours :) but thought there might be a secret I hadn’t yet been let into ;)
        thank you so much for letting me know I’m not 100% inept after all – hehe **

      Hi Claudia, the exact products used for each nail design are listed in the book along with the tutorials. As an alternative you can use any similar shades of black, red, plum and nude. Hope this helps! x
