Gothic beauty dominated the autumn/winter catwalks, with pale faces and deep berry lips casting a smouldering charm. But if you’re not brave enough to channel full-on Hammer House heroine (or if being reminded of your goth youth sends a chill down your spine), you can still make a strong yet understated statement with this season’s blood-red nails. We called on super blogger and nail art guru, Shini Park of Park&Cube for inspiration on how to embrace the gothic vibe… with a ghoulish twist.
‘The easiest way to wear the gothic trend is on your nails,’ says Shini. ‘I used Chanel’s iconic Rouge Noir nail colour, the original blackberry-stained shade, but you can use any dark blood-red polish. It’s important to use two coats to achieve a bold, glossy look. Nails should be short and rounded.’
