Gothcore manicure – a dark trend in nail styling

Autumn is the time when the colors of nature change, but in the world of fashion and beauty, this time of year is also the perfect time to experiment with new, dark and expressive nail styles. One of them is gothic manicure, which you can learn a little more about in the article below.

Black hybrid manicure

Gothcore nails is a combination of two worlds: gothic style with elements characteristic of the music scene. In autumn manicure, this style is reflected in black hybrid nails, which are the central point of the styling. Nails painted black signify depth, mystery and extraordinary strength that each of us has within us.

Black hybrid nails – which color to choose?

The basis of gothic hybrid manicure is usually a color palette focusing on deep black colors. The perfect color to create such a styling will be Total Black and Mysterious Black hybrid varnish. They will create an elegant styling full of mystery.

You can finish black gothcore nails with a shiny or matte hybrid top, depending on the effect you want to achieve. When it comes to the length or shape of gothcore nails, it is not strictly defined. You can choose short, square nails or long, pointed, coffin-style nails. However, it is important that the nails and cuticles around them are well maintained, this will help you enjoy this unique look for longer.

Gothcore manicure - for which styles?

Black nails in the Gothic style go well with dark, unusual or avant-garde clothing. You can combine them with lace, leather, Victorian-style decorations or motifs referring to the Gothic era. In addition, you can also wear Gothic nails as a contrast to more classic styles, adding a touch of extravagance. Ultimately, the outfit you match them with depends only on you and your personal preferences.

Black nails – how to do it?

To perform a gothcore manicure, you need to equip yourself with a night-black hybrid varnish, e.g. Total Black or Mysterious Black. The use of these hybrid varnishes not only makes your nails look unique, but also more durable and less susceptible to damage, and you can enjoy them for several weeks.

Step 1. Prepare the nail plate for styling, give your nails the desired shape, matt the plate and push back the cuticles.
Step 2. After preparing the plate for the hybrid manicure treatment, degrease the nails with Nail prep STANDARD (art. no. 8620),
Step 3. Depending on the type and condition of the tile, apply Primer DELICATO (art. no. 8601) or Primer STANDARD (art. no. 8600)
Step 4. Apply a layer of FLEXI base varnish (art. no. 9496), then cure in the lamp (UV 120 s, LED 30 - 60 s)*
Step 5. Apply a layer of colored hybrid varnish, cure in the lamp (UV 120 s, LED 30 - 60 s)*, repeat the operation.
Step 6. Secure the whole thing with a hybrid top, making sure to close the free edge of the nail thoroughly, then cure it in the lamp (UV 120 s, LED 30 - 60 s). We recommend Top No Wipe.


Depending on your tastes and preferences, you can decorate your nails painted with black hybrid varnish in any way you want. Now you can enjoy your dream style for weeks to come.
