Fashionable black manicure ideas

Fashion trends in the nail design segment today are very diverse, especially for black manicure, which is confirmed by various photo examples of such nail design presented on the Internet.


The most beautiful and original of them are the following:

  • Broken glass effect. This is one of the most current designs that looks best when combined with black as the base color. The effect of “broken glass” is achieved through the use of silver or colored foil, which is laid out on the surface of the nail in a chaotic manner, or is one of the constituent elements of the design.

  • With bright accents. If monochrome design is not to your liking, we suggest diluting it with bright colors. In addition to the standard combinations with white, red and pink, you can also experiment with other palettes. For example, beige, blue, purple and blue will be great complements to black manicure.
