What Are Red Bottom Nails?

Red bottom nails take inspiration from the famous red bottoms; the popular red bottom shoes that look good with a suit which have the color red on the bottom of the heel or boot, featuring a different color on top.

Considering the top of red bottom shoes can range from a variety of different colors such as tan, black or white, the expensive pair of heels have always made a big fashion statement, and now so do the nails!

Red bottom nails have taken a popular pair of shoes and turned them into acrylics.

To make the acrylics red on the bottom and a different color on top, nail techs are painting the acyclic nail red first, and then painting over top of the red with the color of your choosing.

Ask for a design on the ring finger or add jewels on top, these nails are unlike the regular french tip or the matte nail you usually see at the nail salon and can work with any style you desire.

So whether or not you choose black matte as your top coat or a neutral color like nude, your red bottom nails will make a fashion statement on girls night out or during a dinner date for Valentine’s day.
