Elegant Gold Pattern

Black and Gold colours again! I’ve just moved across the world from Australia to Britain for 4 months and I was only able to bring 10 polishes! Not nearly enough! So I’m kinda lacking in colours right now. For the next four months you’ll be seeing the same 10 colours! And also for some reason this is the only picture I have of this design! I can’t believe I remembered to get the progress shot but not the final! 😦 Oh well you can see the final design on one of the nails! That’ll have to be good enough because I’m way too lazy to redo the same design again!

Anyway let’s get into how to do this. You will need 2 colours of polish, a dotting tool (mine’s homemade 😉 ), something to put polish on and a top coat polish. Begin with your base colour and paint all of your nails with as many coats as your polish requires to get a good coverage and colour. Once your base colour is dry put some of your second coloured polish onto your palette of choice, mine is a piece of plastic. Then use your dotting tool to mark out big dots over your nail as shown in the pic on the middle finger. Once you have your markers you should easily be able to add in smaller dots between them to create the diamond shaped criss crossed patterns. I could only fit about 2 little dots between the bigger dots. Then you can apply your top coat and your finished! I hope you enjoy these nails! 🙂 Have a good week!

This weeks nails were inspired by nails Pshiiit, you can find the original post by clicking here. This came up in my Pinterest feed and loved it so I decided to try it out myself. Though I have used different colours I think the effect is still the same.

I chose to use a glittery gold to compliment a green dress that I wanted to wear to a party. I painted all my nails with two coats of polish because the polish I used is a bit translucent with only one coat. Once it was completely dry, i placed pieces of masking tape cut into triangles with the pointy end towards the tip of my nails. I used about 4 piece of extremely pointy end triangle shaped masking tape per nail. I placed them all in different directions to mix it up a bit. I then painted the tip of my nails black over the masking tape. To reveal the jagged points I peeled away the tape once the black polish was completely dry. I finished with a shiny top coat. I hope you enjoy them!
