Nails of the Week: Pink and Gold

This is by no means a new or unique design, but I thought it would be fun to show you anyways.

I painted my nails on Wednesday and took these photos today (Friday). Here's what I used:

-Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Hardener (as a base coat)
-Wet n Wild MegaLast Nail Color in 209C Candy-licious (base colour)
-Revlon Metallic Nail Enamel in 925 Gold Coin (for the dots)
-Beauty Secrets Top Coat Fast Finish Polish Dryer

I first applied the Sally Hansen Hardener as a base coat to keep my nails from going yellow (which can happen if you paint your nails often) and also to help strengthen my nails. Then I painted them two coats of the Candy-licious polish and let them dry completely.

I poured a small amount of Revlon Gold Coin onto a piece of cardstock (paper, cardboard, tissue, etc will work too as long as you're okay with throwing it out). Then I took the end of a thin brush and dipped it into Gold Coin. I used the end of the brush as a dotting tool (rather than going out and buying one, lol) and created dots all over my nails. I let it dry and then finished with the top coat.

It has chipped a tiny bit over the past two days, but in general it's holding up quite well. 

What other colour combinations do you think would look nice with this design?

  1. I love the contrast in colours here, and that pink base is so cute!


  2. Your little circles are SO neat! I don't know how you managed that! I think the same pink but with light blue blobs would look really cute too. :)x

  3. That is so pretty. Gold coin is one of my favorites for nail art, the formula is so loose its easy to create lines.
