Gold Tips

While researching on fall make up trends previously this week, I stumbled upon (not literally on stumbleupon) this photo of matte black nails with gold French tips. This new take on French manicures is completely vamped up!

Inspiration:

This tutorial took me about 15 minutes. To complete this nail tutorial you will need:
– Black Nail Polish (I used “Black Crème by Wet&Wild)
– Gold Sparkle Nail Polish (I used “High Roller” by Ulta)
– A Top Matte Coat (I used “Matte Me Crazy” by NYC Color)

Step 1: Paint 1-2 coats of black nail polish.

Step 2: With the gold sparkle nail polish, paint a French tip. I did this by painting a multiple small bands vertically instead of one large one horizontally.

Step 3: Finally, instead of a clear top-coat, use the matte top coat. This will give your nails a clean matte finish instead of a shine. The photo on the left is immediately after applying the matte, and the photo on the right is the final look after the matte top-coat has dried. Love this look!
