How-To: Galactic Gold Striped Nails



A fun stripe of a shimmer is an easy way to pizzazz up any nail color. I found that CND Gold Shimmer layered gorgeously over black and created a stunning golden green shimmer, perfect for upcoming fall.

Polishes used:


From left to right:
Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Color in White On
N.Y.C. Long-Wearing Nail Enamel in Black Lace Creme
CND Nail Effects Lacquer in Gold Shimmer

1. Paint two coats of base color. I chose white for a contrast between the stripe.


2. Paint a diagonal stripe over each nail. Perfection wasn't a huge deal for me this time, but it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to be neater than me.


3. Layer a shimmer polish over the black stripe.
