Nail Art How To: Sparkling Gold and Black
- French cutter
- A very dull razor
- Gold square glitter
- Young Nails gold glitter acrylic
- NAILITE black acrylic
- OPI clear acrylic
Step 1: Lay down a bead of gold glitter acrylic. With a very dull razor, slice the desired shape.
Step 2: Fill the gap in with black acrylic. Cap with clear. Using the wire, press down to leave a thin gutter. Fill in the gutter with gold glitter acrylic.
Step 3: The ring finger is created similarly. Lay down a bead of black acrylic and using a French cutter, cut the black into an upward curved shape. Add gold acrylic. Then repeat cutting with the gold acrylic. Add more black below.
Step 4: Cap the ring finger with clear.
Step 5: For the middle finger, lay down a very thin layer of black acrylic. You can add more as you go to paste on square glitters in this pattern.
Step 6: Coat pinkies with just a layer of the gold. Make sure all nails are capped with clear. Done!
