how to : 5 simple steps to glittering gold gradient nail art

CNY is coming! but r u prepared for it? new clothes, new bag, new shoes... but how bout your nails? don't you wana make them pretty and flaunt it? xD

yes! i know u want them to be pretty too! but at this peak season, its kinda hard to make booking rite? cz everything seems to be full! and pricey too! >< 

like for instant my hairstylist.. called to make apointment they other day and he said the saloon is fully book for the time being and the next available date would be half a month later! like.. OMG! gt so kua zhang ma?? cut hair nia wor~ 

anyway, for your nails, worry not as i m here to share with you girls out dere on how to beautify your nails with only 5 simple steps! yes! 5 only~ 

here we go :

Step 1 : Paint a layer of base coat. 

 base coat is a very important step whenever you plan to apply any nonsense on your nails because they PROTECT your nails. trust me, a good base coat wil prevent they shitty chemical from killing your nails. you dun wana have yellow or stained nails upon removing the nail polish later on rite? :)

Step 2 : Paint the tip of your nail with bronze/ any light brown nail colour

For my case, i used Elianto Silky brown (07) to paint it.  apply 1 thin coat will do. this step is done to actually cover all the small spaces between the gold glitter later on.

Step 3 : Apply a  fine gold glitter on the second portion of your nail

i used Etude House Sequin Crystal Gold (04) from LUCIDarling range. apply just 1 layer of colour below the brown colour i have applied just now. do not worry yet if the colour do not blend in 

Step 4 : Apply a layer of bigger gold glitter on top of the bronze/ light colour applied in step 2

i used Etude House Spangle Dazzling Gold (09) from LUCIDarling range. apply the whole tip of the nail covering most of the brown colour applied ealier.

Step 5 : Apply top coat on the whole nail

last but not least, apply the top coat on the whole nail. top coat is very important for this nail art because :

a. it dissolves the top layer of the previous painted nail colour and helps to blend in all the colour creating a smooth gradient toning
b. protects the colours and glitters form fading 
c. adds shine to the whole nail art 

so there you go! 5 simple steps and tadah! pretty glittering gold gradient nail art ready to be flaunt during CNY! :)

u can also mix and match with other colour of your choice too! try it and let me know hows your result alright? xD
