1.) Base coat
2.) Top coat
3.) Milani Nail Lacquer in Black Cherry
4.) Milani Nail Lacquer in Gold Glitz (My favorite polish right now)
Ok so I started off by applying my base coat.
Then I cut little strips of tape in the shape of a triangle.
I applied the tape to my nail with the point away from my cuticle.
I applied two coats of Black Cherry and waited for it to dry. Like so..
When it dries take the strips of tape off slowly so the nail polish does not strip.
Then with Gold Glitz I filled in the part of the nail that was bare. This is where it gets tricky, when applying the polish use the brush sideways. Do the strokes with the end of the brush parallel to the lines of the polish towards your cuticles.
Continue to do this to all of them. And don't worry if you make a mess, you can always go back and clean it up with a flat brush and pure acetone. I applied two coats of Gold Glitz then let it dry for a couple minutes before I applied top coat.
I hope you guys enjoyed this and if you try this out let me know if the steps helped you.
Here is the finished look.
