Black Ink-Dyed Fingers

Black Dip-Dyed Fingers are a Fashion-Forward Style Statement

— February 23, 2014 — Pop Culture
Black dip-dyed finger nail art designs have taken over the fashion world after designer Thom Browne debuted black tipped fingers at the 2014 New York Fashion Week Show. The shows featured models with morbid dark tipped nails and fingers while strutting the couture fashions. The look is achieved by dipping nails and finger tips entirely in black finger paint. The nails aren’t supposed to leave a mess once they are dry, therefore the unique look is functional as well.

Thom Browne incorporated eerie, dark fingers into the collection to add a dramatic edgy touch to the clothing lines. The dip-dyed fingers go extremely well with the show's religious and goth themed couture clothing line. The nails are dark and serve as the perfect morbid accessory.   

The black dip-dyed finger look is super fashion-forward and risk-taking for those who choose to rock it. Even though the nail art is unconventional and odd, the gothic witchy look has become ultra popular since Lorde’s 2014 Grammy performance. The nails have been featured on various fashion blogs and DIY websites.

The smudged fingers give off an artsy vibe and are super easy to recreate.
