There are a number of different ways in which you can flaunt your lovely red nails and if you follow the right tips, you will not only be more than impressed with the results, but also be the envy of the rest of your friends! One of the quickest and easiest ways to get the desired effect on your nails is to simply paint them a bright red – so that they stand out from the rest of your nails. Another great way in which you can enhance the look of your nails is to use a contrasting nail colour on the tips of your nails and then to accentuate them further by filing them down (not on the nails themselves) so that the colour stands out even more. You could even try and achieve the same effect by filing your nails down so that they are as long as your index finger – just be careful not to make your nails look like they are pointing at your thumb…
Red Nail Design Ideas
One of the quickest and most effective red nail design ideas is to use a nail tip pencil to create some really bold designs. By starting with a white one, you can build upon this with different shades of colour throughout the course of the design – adding various layers and variations to your nail in order to add an extra touch of class to it. Another option is to use some glitter along the base of the nails – this adds a dramatic effect and can also be used to give your nails a more distinguished look.
Finally, the tips of your fingers are a great place to add some glitzy red nail design ideas! One of the easiest ways in which you can do this is by having your nails filed down to your tips and applying some glitter over the top and sides. This works best with short nails and can also be applied using a hand brush. Another idea that has worked well for me is to have some red polish applied to the tips of my fingers and then to have a coat of gloss applied over these – I am of course relying on you being able to see how well this looks!
