10 Dark Red Nail Art Designs for Moody Manicure

Red Velvet

This elegant and seductive Dark Red Nail velvet manicure features a striking stiletto shape. To get this textured nail look, use a magnetic polish like INLP’s Nail Polish ($10) in Ruby. 

Jelly Red

Trending now are glossy, jelly nails, which look especially great when painted a deep red color. Additionally, this red manicure has an extra dose of edge thanks to the extended square shape. 

Cat Eye Red

This manicure with a cat-eye is captivating. Every nail has a perfect contrast between the glittery pink highlights and the dark red base. 

Matte French Red

Remixing a French manicure can be done in so many different ways, and we adore this dark red version of the traditional style. Apply a base coat of Gelcare’s $20 Cabernet Gel Polish and then top it off with a matte finish. Coat the French tip with a glossy finish. 

Spooky Season Red

What better way to celebrate Halloween if you’re into that sort of thing than with this unique dark red manicure? A Halloween manicure would be perfect with the combination of skulls, flames, and barbed wire, which creates a fiercely frightening design. 

3D Rose Swirl

You can stop searching if you want a complicated and distinctive manicure. The dark red tips of these stiletto manis are embellished with swirls of 3D jelly. It’s among the most striking red nail art ideas we’ve ever seen. 

Lovely Red Heart

This nail set is a veritable masterpiece, boasting an array of captivating design elements that elevate it to sheer uniqueness. The dark red French tips add a touch of sophistication, blending seamlessly with the overall elegance. 

Pop Art Red

One of the newest and most popular nail trends to hit the scene is the pop art manicure. The comic-like effect can be achieved with any color, but we think the chunky black lining and dark red polish look really great together. 

Deep Red Shimmer

When seeking a striking yet straightforward manicure sans elaborate designs, the Dear Santa shade from ILNP Nail Polish fits the bill impeccably. This glittery dark red hue exudes a magnetic allure that captivates without overwhelming.  

Crystal Nail Accents 

For a more subtle take on crystals, bedazzle the nails in a vertical line for a sparkly accent. You can customize the design by playing with the length of the lines.
