Nude & Black Deep V Nail Art

Hi everyone!

Nude and black is just about my favourite colour combination ever, so last night I pulled out those colours and just started painting, with no real design plan in mind. What I came up with is a deep v manicure, which although simple in execution, looks totally chic and sophisticated.


The colours I used are OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons and Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme. Don't Pretzel My Buttons has become my all-time favourite nude polish, so I'm definitely going to have to buy a back-up bottle asap. I used a striping brush to create the deep v portions and then just filled them in with the same brush.


If you're not all that comfortable with your freehand striping skills, this type of manicure can also be achieved using tape. Just make sure your base colour is completely dry before placing the tape on your nails.


I'm totally loving this look, so I'll definitely be trying it out with some different colour combinations in the future. I'm thinking of even doing a gradient in the deep v section! How cool would that look?!

So what's on your nails today?

  2. Pretty! I think I like the accent nail best. The others seem like they might present an odd optical illusion from a distance!

  7. dig the deep V look! Gonna have to try it. Today I was lacking an inspiration at all, so I have CG's Call Of The Wild w/ Essie's Shine of the Times on top. It's ok looking I guess, but I broke one of my fingernails down to the quik the other day :( so that sucked any motivation right out of me, lol.
