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.
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:
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.
