In Cosmopolitan’s fall nail trends guide, the Vampy V manicure enhances an oxblood manicure with a peekaboo effect.
Follow Cosmo’s steps to get the look:
- Apply a base coat and nude polish. Cosmo says it should be opaque enough to cover the white of nails. Let it dry completely for at least 20 minutes.
- Create the V by cutting pieces of masking tape into narrow triangles. Place the tape at the edges with the pointy part toward the base.
- Apply two coats of red. Once it dries, peel off the tape and apply a top coat.
Cosmo’s Quick Tip: For easy and clean removal, leave a little overhang of the tape at the tip.
