Black and Red Colorblocking

I first saw this design in Nail It! magazine and knew immediately I had to try this black and red color blocking. The original nail art was shown in a China Glaze nail art ad, had I red and black in China Glaze I would have used them but I didn’t.

I love black and red color blocking and this manicure was fun to play with because I was able to use black nail polish without getting the grunge look that can sometimes happen with full on black nails. I think the final results are super sharp looking and I would definitely do it again. This is definitely a look anyone who wears nail polish can pull off.

I used Julep’s Evie red for the base and drew on the black contrast with LA Colors Art Deco nail art lacquer. I found it super easy to do although I was paranoid I was going to make a mess with the black. Obviously, doing the left hand was harder.

About Moe Wood

About a year ago I became the most obsessed with nail polish than any other period of my life. I decided I'd like to share this obsession with others and started this blog (I have been blogging elsewhere for over five years). I am not a nail art professional. I like to keep my nails relatively short and to keep to the basics when it comes to polish/design/art etc. I love all kinds of colors and do not believe in specific colors for specific ages, if you love it wear it!
