Grunge roses

Today’s grunge nail look was inspired by the name of one of the polishes I used to create it :) I’m talking about Nevermore – a black creme by Cult Nails.

Grunge flowers nail art

I wanted to do a grunge floral nail design, with some cold darkness added to it. Nevermore helped me with the dark grunge part, and I found coldness in Manipulative, another amazing shade from Cult Nails.

… and the names on the bottles:

Cult Nails black nail polish

I started off with 1 coat of Orly Nail Defense clear base. Next I painted my nails with Cult Nails Manipulative (2 coats), and after the polish was dry to the touch, I applied white acrylic paint in the middle of each nail with a nail art brush, and then I generously sponged Nevermore on the tips. The background was ready for stamping and painting.

I stamped rose leaves with Nevermore and Konad M65 plate. I wanted to stamp the flowers too, but they were of a too small size for the design. That’s why I painted dark red roses on my nails with a nail art brush and acrylic paint. As always, I finished the design with one coat of a clear top… and that was it :)

The list of products I used for the grunge roses nail art:

  • Orly Nail Defense base
  • Cult Nails Manipulative – pastel mint nail polish with micro shimmer
  • Cult Nails Nevermore – the blackest black nail polish, very well pigmented, and with glossy finish
  • Konad M65 plate
  • Acrylic paints
  • Clear top coater

“Nevermore to feel the pain the heart collector sang…” – lines from a song I always remember when I paint my nails with this black :) I love Cult Nails names, and Nevermore is a perfect name for a totally black nail polish.

Thank you for reading! I wish you all a relaxing weekend xxx
