    Black Nails with White Tips

    Hey everyone!

    I was wondering what are your thoughts on black nails with white tips as an everyday look on a female. Trendy? Trashy? Goth? Edgy?

    Here are some pics. These are the hands of Bill Kaulitz, lead singer of Tokio Hotel. Yes, he's dude and no, he's not what you are probably wondering.

    I think it's an "edgy" look. Something maybe goths, punks, scene kids would wear and so on.

    I don't think it's trashy, just different.
    There's a reason why "M.A.C." rhymes with "crack".

    I'd say it more mod to me. IRL it looks really sophisticated.

    It's different, goth-like, not trashy, but I'd prefer the other way around.

    well it's a hard look to pull off. i'm not a fan =\ but some people could definitely wear them and look great.

    Don't really like it, but on the other hand, black nails with red tips...
    I was thinking about doing it, but not only the tip, but a red half-moon too

    I like it. My biggest problem with nails right now is that my polishes are all old and gloopy, because I'm poor and haven't bought more for a long time. But when I have money again I am going to get tons of different colours and do stuff like this!

    i like this better than just a normal white solid line. for an office job, i dont think it is appropriate, but i do like it! mayb ei will try it with a color other than black!

    ETA: how did you get such clean white lines?

    I don't have a problem with it. Although I think I'd probably prefer a black tip white nail myself.

    I really like that look! Really well done. I loved the orange/white combo in the Sephora catalog last summer so much I emailed them about it! I think robin egg blue with a white tip is a great combo too.

    IMO it all depends on your office and how you take care of it.

    I like them. I think it's edgy in a sophisticated way
    I've done it to when my nails were longer.

    I think it sounded better in words than it actually looks in person. But I don't hate it! It doesn't seem like anything is too "different" anymore... sooo many people are trying to to deviate from the norm that it's hard to tell what's ordinary any more. I like it!

    When I read the title of the post, I automatically thought of Bill Kaulitz (I have a celeb-crush on him)!! I like them. I think they're sophisticated-goth.
    I make extra money for MAC from there^
