This manicure takes a modern and edgy black nail and gives it a splash of color with red under the nail, just like the world-famous trademark soles of Christian Louboutin's shoes. I absolutely LOVE this manicure- I think it is so modern and fun yet classy at the same time. I chose to use fake nails for this manicure because not only can it be super messy (try painting nicely underneath your nails using your non-dominant hand), but it makes it possible for short-nailed girls (like me) to pull off this design. It is simple, clean and edgy- any shoe lover or fan of Louboutin's would agree, I'm sure.
Now I can't take credit for the idea of this manicure- there are salons which provide this type of manicure service....however I thought I would put my spin on it by using fake nails to make it easier.
Favorite product (more like 'inspiration') of the tutorial = Christian Louboutin Classic Black Patent Leather Heels because its the iconic shoe everyone thinks of when they hear 'Louboutin' and the color scheme used here.
