Nail Art Tutorial: Gold Plated Moon

Rita Remark, one of Canada’s top nail artists designed this simple shimmery look to ring in the autumn and winter months. Follow her lead to get the perfect balance of metallic shine and sophisticated dots.

You’ll need:

  • Essie Licorice
  • Essie Good as Gold
  • Striping Brush
  • Dotting Tool
  • Essie First Base Base Coat
  • Essie Good to Go Top Coat

Step 1: Apply a thin coat of First Base Base Coat.

Step 2: Follow with two even coats of Licorice.

Step 3: Using a striping brush dipped in Good As Gold, draw a horizontal line across the “moon” as a guideline. Fill in the rest of the nail to the tip.

Step 4: Dip the dotting tool in Licorice and create a horizontal line of dots across your gold. Finish it all off with a shiny coat of Good to Go Top Coat.
