It's an undeniable fact that playing the femme fatale can be a lot of fun and one of the most important things to help get such a look just right is choosing the right manicure. There are a lot of different styles to choose from but which is best?
The staple "femme fatale" colors are the sexy ones, whether we're talking nail polish, lipstick or clothes. Black, red, midnight blue, indigo and any other dark and mysterious shades are perfect.
Coordinate your look
If you go for a red nail polish, you might want to think about matching it to your lipstick to help create a polished, put-together look. A femme fatale is nothing if not perfectly poised!
Where darker colors are concerned, think about coordinating a part of your outfit to go with it.
For example, if you decide to wear a black dress, go for a black manicure. If you wear a midnight blue scarf, apply some midnight blue nail polish.
The little things...
For anyone out there wanting to try a more detailed manicure, try adding a thin strip of gold cut from a nail art sticker about a third of the way down your nail. This minimalist addition adds a touch of sparkle to any deep, dark look without ruining the sexiness of it all.
You could also try an accent nail. By painting one nail different to the others, you'll create an individual look that will make any seductive hand gestures all the more memorable.
Expert tip: Steer clear of anything pink and/or overly glitzy...
