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:

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.
