Guest Post From Nailz Craze - Devilish Gradient

My fifth and final guest post is from Natalie of Nailz Craze. I'm so excited to have Natalie on my blog, she has some of the most amazing photography in the blogging world (I'm constantly in awe of it) and her nails are flawless! She's also the creator of a range of gorgeous stamping plates which I really need to get my hands on one day (one has a unicorn!) her blog contains a mix of swatches, nail art and beauty reviews so be sure to have a look!

Hi there, dear Brit Nails readers!

First let me start by saying how flattered and honored I was when Allie invited me to do a guest post for her blog, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to share my nail art with her lovely readers! I hope you will like the nail art I prepared for this post. 

I decided to go for a red and hot nail art; At first I had no idea where this nail art is headed, I just knew I wanted to have a red and black gradient (a super hot color combo at these days, after the release of the new Christian Louboutin nail polish) and then go from there. Once my red-black gradient was complete, I kind of liked it as is so I wanted to keep it rather simple. Then I decided that maybe some gold will probably go nicely with these two colors, don’t you agree? So gold it was!

I added some random swipes of a metallic gold nail polish, creating this fun and easy distressed look. I became pretty obsessed over the distressed nail art look after Sarah’s great tutorials at Chalkboard Nails!

So there it is, my red-black-gold mani with a hint of a devilish touch! I don’t know if it’s the colors or the almond nail shape (or maybe it’s just me), but you can see what I mean, right? ;)

Nail polish I used for this nail art:

Cirque Holdfast Base Coat
Ga-De #363 Geisha (red)
Cirque Memento Mori (black)
Sally Hansen #420 Liquid Gold
Cirque Liquid Laminate Top Coat

I hope you liked my nail art for this post, and hopefully stop by my blog to say hello and check my nail art! Thanks for reading!

  1. This is so vampy and mysterious. I love it. It's pretty but tough and edgy too. You know what? This made me think of is my Rimmel London Show Off lip lacquer. The pink and black gradient looks just like my tube of Apocaliptic or Nova. This is such a great manicure.

  2. This is absolutely amazing! Perfect with the simple rings on your fingers, Natalie :)

  3. Very mysterious and rock style mani which I absolutely love!


I appreciate all comments, but please do not leave links. Thank you! :)
