You will need:
- Base Coat
- Gold Nail Polish
- Black Nail Polish
- Striping Tape
- Gold Beads or Gold Studs
- Top Coat
STEP 1: Make sure you begin with clean, bare nails. Apply the base coat. When dry, apply 1-2 coats of the gold nail polish. It should be dry to the touch before continuing. (Keep the amount of polish even.)
STEP 2: Use the striping tape to create the pattern as demonstrated. Don’t be afraid to get creative. Draw inspiration from the movie posters! Make sure the striping tape is properly attached to avoid the polish getting under it.
STEP 3: Paint 2 coats of black nail polish over the pattern.
STEP 4: Depending on the type of nail polish you have, remove the striping tape quickly or after it has dried completely.
STEP 5: Dip the toothpick in the top coat so that you can use it to get the gold bead/stud. Attach the stud on the angle as shown in the diagram.
STEP 6: Wait for nails to dry and apply 2 – 3 layers of top coat.
