This nail trend has taken the internet by storm and in this video, you will get to watch how to create gold foil nail art. There are plenty of gold foil nail art ideas that are surfacing and here is one of the simplest to begin with.
Here Are The Steps To Create Gold Foil Nail Art
Start off with a base coat to protect your natural nails texture. This step will help prevent your nail from staining and chipping.
Over the base coat, apply a white nail polish to begin with. Depending on the opacity of the white polish, apply one or two coats. Allow it to dry completely before moving forward with the next step.
To speed up the drying process, you can apply a fast drying top coat. This step is completely optional.
Use a makeup sponge for the application of ombre pastel shade on the nails. To begin with, create painting stripes of desired color palette on the makeup sponge. For deeper and desirable effect, paint the stripes properly.
Use this makeup sponge and dab it over your nails. The initial step is a little tricky and might not turn out perfect. Repeat the same process until you get the desired design and colour. This can be achieved with a few trials.
The step of using the gold foils is the most crucial part of creating gold foil nail polish. Purchase gold foils that are available at accessory stores or online. Click on the link given in the description box of the video to order it online.
Trim the length of the gold foil nail art design. Cut the pattern into small pieces that will fill your nail length. Peel off the clear backing and position the tattoo over your nails.
Use a wet paper towel and dab it over the tattoo to transfer it onto your nail.
Peel off the excess tattoo using tweezers or dissolve it using a cotton swab dipped in nail polish remover.
Lastly, apply top coat to seal in your design and to add a beautiful shine to your nails. These steps finish the segment of gold leaf for nail art.
