Black Beach Chic

Black Beach Nail Art

Earlier this year, my family rented a house in Dillon Beach, CA for a weekend vacation.  I wanted to do a beach themed nail, but not overly tropical since that's not how northern California beaches are.  I chose a black and gold look - gold to represent the sand, and black to add a cool, chic quality to it.

Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Wet n Wild - Black Crème
  • Orly - Luxe
Other Supplies:
  • Gold nail tape
  • Gold metal rectangle studs
  • Gold metal seashell stud
  • Various other crystals and studs
  • Nail art brush
  • Base and top coats

Since the paint job is pretty simple, this is a fast mani to create.  To get the look:
  1. Apply the base colors - all nails black, except the ring finger which should be gold.
  2. Place a single gold rectangle on the tips of the pinky and index fingers, and three studs on the tip of the thumb in a pyramid shape.
  3. Apply gold nail tape in a large rectangle pattern on the middle finger.
  4. Using a nail brush, paint in the center of the triangle with gold polish.
  5. Cover the triangle with the seashell stud, and various other crystals and studs. I chose crystals/studs that were pink, purple, aqua, gold, and clear.
  6. Seal all the studs on with a few coats of clear top coat.
