I was recently watching the video for Lana Del Rey's 'Born to Die' the other day and I noticed how good her nails look in the video. They are painted in a really simple and sophisticated way, and look sleek and well-groomed.
Sorry it's only a tiny picture
I had to use false nails for this, as my natural nails are too short at the moment, so I am wearing Elegant Touch in 'Totally Bare'.
Start off my applying a basecoat, and afterwards a nude colour polish. I used Barry M 'Pinky Caramel', although any polish for the base coat of a french manicure would be right for this.
Next, use a bright red polish (I've used 17 Fast Finish in 'Knockout Red') and apply a small triangular point on either edge of the nail. These points need to meet in the middle and will need to be as symmetrical as possible.
Finally, using a very fine brush or a nail art pen draw a very thin line between the red and nude colour. I've used one from a Rio nail art set in Silver, although you could also use gold :)
And ta-dahhh there you have Lana Del Rey's nails :)
