To achieve these nails worn by Rihanna you will need:
- white nail polish as base coat
- black nail polish
- matte black nail polish
This look is extremely simple to achieve, here's how to do it
Step 1 First use your white nail polish and paint your nail all over as a base, leave it to completely dry before moving on to the next step. Make sure your base is smooth and even because if your base is bumpy your end result will also be bumpy.
Step 2 Next with your black nail polish paint your cuticle side of the nail. If you do not have a steady hand you can make a paper template, get a sheet of paper and cut out a semi circle shape and place against nail then paint over the missing section to get an even and precise semi circle. Wait until it is 100% dry before moving on to the next step.
Step 3 Finally using your matte black nail polish paint the rest of your nail with it. To avoid mixing the matte with the shiny black cover up the bit already painted with a piece of paper and then paint the rest with the matte nail polish.
To change up the style and make it your own you can use different colours or switch the cuticle section to be matte and the rest shiny.
Hope you enjoy.

Short Nails No Problem
Just because you have shorter nails doesn't mean you have to stick with boring colours, choose pastels, vibrant or really deep tones anything goes as long as the nails look healthy and well manicured, a french manicure is a classic still you could even have fun with it and use different tones to match your outfit. Try ice blue and navy, orange with gold/bronze, baby pink with hot pink. There are no rules if you want to be less noticeable go for a paler shade a light dusting of gold or silver looks really nice on any length of nail too. Light colours will not show so easily if you have chipped the colour away so they are also a safe choice, best advice take the varnish with you, you never know what might happen, a dab of colour will look better than a big bare chunk. You need not paint the whole nail again just use for a quick cover up.
Same goes for acylics! or other false nails. Have you ever had a nail fall off - it happens be a tiny bit prepared, glue, nail polish in the make-up bag, just incase!
