The color red will never go out of style. It’s the color of passion and desire, of power and good luck. It’s a strong, passionate color which will certainly give you that extra confidence. Let’s see how we can spice up our classic red nail art. Add a red lipstick to any of these manicures to finish your look in a feminine manner. Don’t be afraid to show off your feminine goddess, you’re more than worth it.
1. Bold Red Design
If you want to take the red polish out of the classical scheme, you should consider a red and purple gradient design. Start with a base coat to protect your natural nails and then add your favorite shade of red. On a makeup sponge put red and purple polish and dab it gentle onto your nails until you get the desired effect. Wear a pair of boyfriend jeans, magenta heals and a large white shirt. Let your hair naturally fall on your shoulders and you’ll have a statement look.
2. Red Fox Design
If you want a well-groomed, but want to spice it up, this is the design for you. Use a simple rich red nail polish as a base coat. On one of your ring fingers you can draw this beautiful fox and on the other its tail. Finish off with a top coat. This is for sure an elegant design for a classy lady. Wear a tight red dress and your favorite pair of stilettos.
3. Polka dots
If you feel like wearing red polish on your nails, but not only red polish, you can try the following design. Paint some of your nails with your favorite shade of red and let them dry. On a few nails add a white or a black base color and with the opposite color and your dotting tool add some dots. This will add a playful side to your story. Add a red beret, striped top and dark jeans and you have yourself a Parisian look.
4. Matte Design
Start with a matte black base color and let it dry. Then, with a glitter red polish create a gradient effect. End with a matte topcoat. This is a rebel look with a touch of tenderness. Add a pair of ripped black jeans and a lightweight silk top and your favorite leather jacket. Red lips and red nail art, and you’ll catch all the eyes.
5. Cherry Blossom Design
For this design you’ll need red, black, and white polish. Apply your base colors and let them fully dry. Then with a nail art brush and black acrylic paint start drawing your branches. Let them dry as well, and add your flowers. For the pink color you can mix red and white. At the middle of the flowers add white little dots. This is a sophisticated and extremely feminine red nail art. For the outfit, you’ll need a kimono dress and red sandals. Wear your hair in a tight bun and let your face be shown.
6. Negative Space Design
This kind of design is extremely popular this season and delightfully simple. You’ll need striping tape to create perfect lines. Choose your dearest color of deep red and apply it. Let it dry and finish off with a top coat. Even if it’s minimalistic, it somehow draws attention upon itself. Wear a burgundy lipstick, a silver skirt, and confidence as the best accessory.
7. Hearts Design
Start with a red base color and let it dry. On your ring finger apply white base color. With a thin striping tool start adding stripes. Use a nail art brush to draw the cutest little hearts that will warm you up. Wear a light pink cropped top, your favorite skirt and a big chunky cardigan. You’re off to conquer all the hearts you require.
8. Red French Manicure
This is a more pretentious design which reminds us of royalty. You’ll start with a base coat and add half moon shaped red tips. For your ring finger you need all kinds of rhinestones to enrich this design. I do picture this design being used on a special event, with a floor-length lace dress. Be a chic lady in red with red nail art and look wonderful on your special nights.
9. Hearts French Manicure
To be more adorable than you already are, you can add a big heart on every nail. Start off with a nude color base coat in order to make the heart pop. Let it dry and then draw your heart as big as you like. Finish with a topcoat. Curl your hair, add a lingerie dress and boots, and go on a date with your sweetheart.
10. Daises Design
For this design you’ll start with a deep brownish red polish as a base color. Let it dry. Add a matte topcoat. On your ring finger you can apply gold glitter polish. If you prefer silver, you can use that instead. Draw your daises with a nail art brush and add gold or silver studs in the middle of them. This look reminds us more of autumn, yet it has a touch of glamour to it. Take your comfy sweater, black jeans, high golden heals, do your hair in a messy bun and you’re ready to be fabulous.
Red nail art will never fade, as long as women will exist, red will be powerful. Even if you’re dressed like you’re going to a rock concert or a red carpet event, red nails can help you look even sexier. Olivia Palermo, Dita von Teese or Rihanna are just a few examples of ladies with such different styles who wear this color on their nails. As for makeup, you can add a simple black line with your eyeliner and a red lipstick. Stay classy, ladies.
