It’s time to bridge the gap between girly and daring with pink and black nails. It’s an undeniably chic combination that unites two dominant hues to create a flirty look with an edgy touch.
It’s impossible to overlook pink, especially when it’s paired with the most classic and striking of all neutrals, black. The tone of your nail design, however, all depends on the shades you choose.
Pair black with blush pink for a subtle look or couple the dark tone with fuchsia for a more dramatic finish. No strangers to creative designs, this eye-catching color scheme is just the boost you need to inspire the most stunning nail art.
From heart overlays to loose glitter, fun swirls, and more, the ideas are endless but once you’ve chosen your preferred shades, settling on a design can be the hardest part.
That’s why I’ve rounded up a list of the trendiest pink and black nail designs out right now. Just here following the advice of Essie Weingarten; “You’re never fully dressed without a good manicure.”
