Black nails can be a little harsh and dark for many people but we have come up with a solution.  Add rhinestones to one nail.  This way you will still have the dark side from the black nails but you will sparkle.  Make sure you add shiny black tips to the matte black nails for that extra touch.

13. Pop of White

If you’re not feeling black nails, maybe you could add a little touch of white?

Do you want to create a softer matte black design?

If you answered yes, this is the design for you.  Paint your nails matte black but keep an accent nail.  The accent nail will need to be painted a lighter contrast colour, for example an off white or ivory.  These colours work better with the black lace design.  If you aren’t confident on your lace freehand skills, you can always buy a lace stencil which will have the same outcome.  Just remember to wait until your base coat is fully dry before you start on the lace.  To finish the look, add a few diamantes to your lace design.

17. Black Matte French Tip

Nude and black nails look divine.

Nude base nails will show off your elegant and delicate side, whilst the matte black tips will create the intense side.  The accent nail is optional but we think it looks great.

18. Black French Tip Stiletto Nails

If you tend to have stiletto nails, maybe you could try this.

This will show off your nails as well as the design.  By not painting all of your nails in a shiny black colour, you are drawing attention to the stiletto nails.

19. Half Moon Design

This works on short and long nails.
