Lana Del Rey Inspired Nail Art

The video for Lana Del Rey's new single, Born To Die, was released on Wednesday and I'm not exaggerating when I say I've been listening to the song on repeat ever since I first heard it (apart from the hours I spent at work or sleeping). This chick is just gorgeous and she's my hair idol. Mine WILL look like that one day!

Lana's nails in the video are so sexy. These were the best screen shots I could get of the nails but you can watch the stunning video in full here.

I used Cult Nails Cruisin' Nude as a base then freehanded the chevrons with La Femme Cherry Red (3rd day in a row I've used this shade!) using a striping brush.
I used Barry M Gold Foil with a smaller striping brush to freehand the gold lines.
If you don't have steady, line drawing hands, you can use scotch tape to mark off the area you want to paint red, just make sure your base colour is completely dry before you go sticking tape on your nails.



  1. I love the fact that, these days, you can see nail art in music videos. We're taking over the world, girl! I'm loving that Barry M gold Foil, such a nice polish.

  2. pretty!! And you did such a good job executing it! Your lines are so straight!

  3. Very sexy! Your nails are always so perfect!

  4. It's so simple and so pretty.

  5. lovely! I like your base colour! How would it look on oval nails...

  6. I really like this! So simple and chic :)

  7. Lana is sooo awesome <3 and I love your nails!

  8. You're bringing sexy back (to red)!! Yeah! ;) I'm so tired of red, but not with these nails! Awesome nails.

  9. I'm going to try this later! I'm gonna post some pics after and link them back to your blog. Love! :)
