Nude and Gold Nails

There’s nothing more classy than @nailsbyravi_‘s nude and gold nails. To copy her nude and gold nails, you’ll need a soft pink nude polish and gold foil and gel or gold foil tape. First, paint your nails with nude polish. If you’re going to use gold foil tape, curve it around your tips. Then cut off the excess tape. Finally, use top coat. If you’re going to use gold foil and gel, then use a liner brush and gel. Draw a curved line. Press the gold foil sheet into the gel and pull it away. Some of the gold foil will stick to your nails. Don’t forget to apply top coat. And that’s it! Your nude and gold nails are done.

White and Gold Nails

@gelsbybry keeps it classy with these white and gold nails. To copy her white and gold nails, grab nude and white polishes, a liner brush, and gold foil tape such as Nail Stamping Queen UK’s Gold Flexi Tape. First, use nude polish on your nails. Next, make a wavy line along one side of each nail using the liner brush and white polish. Then stretch and curve the tape into place on your nails. Cut off any remaining tape. Then seal the deal with top coat. And there you have it. Your white and gold nails are ready to go.
