Rose Gold Party Nails

Published November 28, 2016 by beginnersnailart

Hi everyone! We’re only a few days away from the start of December and the countdown to Christmas has already started, which also means the start of party season! This year rose gold is the on trend colour for the season, so my first party nails of the season are a rose gold and black ombré.To recreate the look yourself you’ll need two rose gold polishes (a lighter and a darker one), a rose gold glitter to match the darker rose gold polish, a black polish, and a makeup sponge. You’ll also need some polish remover and cotton buds for clean-up. I also used a small nail art brush to apply vaseline around my nails to make clean-up easier. The polishes I’ve used here are Seashell, Ginger, Izzy Whizzy, and Jet Black, all by Technic. Since I was using glitter, I also used Technic’s peel off base coat to make removing it easier.

Step 1: once your base coat dries, apply one coat of the lighter rose gold polish and let it dry.
Step 2: apply all three polishes onto the makeup sponge like this and dab off the excess. You’ll need to repeat this inbetween each nail.
Step 3: sponge the colours onto your nails with the black polish at the tips. You’ll need to apply two to three layers so the polishes are opaque enough, so just remember to give each layer a few minutes to dry before adding the next.
Step 4: use the corner of the sponge to dab some glitter polish over the darker rose gold.
Step 5: clean up around your nails, apply topcoat, and you’re ready to party!
I really hope you liked this design and try it out yourself. If you want a more subtle look you can always skip the glitter polish step, or add a matte top coat.

Have fun and stay safe,
