Choose one of these goth or emo nail designs to give yourself an edgy look. These nail designs can be worn during any time of year, and some are great for everyday wear (including a day at the office) too.
Goth is a subculture that began in the United Kingdom during the early 1980s. It was created as an offshoot of the punk rock scene. Goth music typically has a dark, or eerie sound. The fashion style associated with the Goth subculture is usually black clothing and make-up.
Emo is a subculture that began in the United States during the 1990s. It was originally considered to be a subset of the punk rock scene. Emo music typically has confessional, personal lyrics. The fashion style associated with Emo is usually tight jeans, skinny jeans, t-shirts with band logos, and hoodies.
