I know we women are all going crazy if the accessoirs don’t match together. Some of us want to be so perfect that we even take care that the details of the accessoirs look good together. And if you are one of the lucky woman who own her own Louboutins, then you need to check out this simple and amazing tutorial.
Yesterday I saw a video about Louboutin Style Nails here and I had to find out how to make it myself. It turns out to be very simple. So I looked for tutorials and there quite a few of them online.
Below you find a gallerie how to do the Louboutin Style Nails step by step:
Step 1 Note: This manicure works best on long nails—the better to show off that flashy red! In the interest of really showing a clear tutorial, we opted for acrylic nails this time around. Apply a base coat of clear polish. (No need to apply the coat underneath your nails.)
Step 2 Apply two coats of black polish.
Step 3 Let dry for a few minutes.
Step 4 Flip your hand over: It’s time to apply that Louboutin red. The key to a mess-proof under-mani is to keep a fairly dry brush—just a tiny bit of color is necessary. Try holding down the skin on each finger as you apply. Carefully brush it on, but don’t worry about getting it on your skin. You’ll clean that up in a minute. Let dry for a few minutes.
Step 5 Have a Q-tip and either a bamboo cuticle pusher or another Q-tip with most of the cotton removed on hand. To get rid of any red polish on your skin, dip your tool of choice in nail polish remover and gently brush off the red, while trying to avoid removing the polish that’s underneath your nail. Tip: Holding down the skin on each finger as you do this makes it a lot easier!
Step 6 Finish off with a clear top coat. No need to apply it underneath your nails. Instead, as you paint the top of each nail, swipe the polish along the edge as well.
This tutorial was done with Louboutins own nail polish product. But you can also do it with any other black and red nail polish.
