Give Your Nails A Gothic Twist This Summer With A Dark Manicure, Appearances

Darker hues are always on trend for the colder months, but this season, designers favoured wine tones. Do you disdain pastels? Beachy waves? Flower crowns? Sunbathing? Then come embrace the dark side as it’s cooler in the shade. Deep purples, burnt reds, and rich mahoganies adorned the nails of models at fashion weeks. If you’re feeling a bit vampy? This manicure is for you!

Seen on the runways of Naeem Khan, Antonio Marras and Etro, these gothic claws gave off a sense of devil-may-care nonchalance like no other. A dark polish or colour, whether it’s purple, red, maroon, or even black, makes your hands look chic and gives a sense of grown-up elegance. With music festival season on the rise, ditch those subtle pastels that look especially unsightly even with the slightest of scratch or chip on the nail and opt for a darker hue instead.

We adore dark nails, especially a nice dark maroon as the colour works with almost any outfit and is universally appealing on every skin tone. For your dark mani to look its best, always keep your nails super short. If going black isn’t your style a violet hue is a fun, new twist on dark nails. If you’re still a little unsure about opting for this trend in the summers, try out some navy nails! Nautical is always big in the summers and what better a way to embrace it than navy hued claws. The dark, chic colour is a refreshing change from burgundy or black and looks great on fingertips or toes. If all else fails, there’s always that glittery metallic top coat that can make just about any colour come alive. Ahead, take a look from our delectable selection of vampy hues that are sure to make you’re manicure a lot more interesting this season…
