I spotted this fabulous nail art over on pinterest last week, and when I showed the pin to my daughter she asked if she could treat me to a fun manicure right on the spot. We wanted to use the original look as our inspiration, but with Spring newly upon us we started thinking that using lighter “Springy” polishes might look best. So we decided on a golden / metallic look that was surprisingly easy to create.
To replicate the look that my daughter created for me you will need:
- Scotch office tape
- Sally Hansen “Shell We Dance” Polish
- Essie “Good As Gold” Polish
- Sally Hansen “Golden Rule” Polish
- Your favorite clear topcoat
Apply one coat of “Shell We Dance” polish all over the nail and allow it to try completely. Use strips of Scotch tape (two strips per nail) to tape off each nail, leaving a triangle-shaped portion of each nail visible. Swipe a thing coat of “Good As Gold” across each nail. Be sure to fully coat the non-taped portion with polish. Allow to dry. Next apply a thin coat of “Golden Rule” polish atop the dried gold polish. Once dry, slowly peel away the tape on each finger. Finish by applying a coat of your favorite clear topcoat to seal. Ta-da!
Make this look your own using your current favorite polish / colors! xo Ez
