Today at the Jen Kao show, CDC nails introduced the “lethal love” manicure.
Inspired by poisonous frogs (I’m totally serious), it combines a deep base color with a bold gradation on the tips.
Although the bottom looks black, nail artist Wanda Ruiz actually used a midnight blue color called “Inkwell.”
Then she layers one of three colors – cobalt blue (at left), lipstick red, or emerald green – on top.
Just one trick:
Mix a tiny bit of the polishes together in the middle of your nail, then add blue on top and navy on the bottom -
Otherwise, it just looks like a reverse mani, which is great, but not “lethal.”
And who doesn’t want a little danger?
