Simple Nail Art: Purple, Gold & Shimmer

 I was, again, bored the other day so I decided to do an experimental nail art. I was inspired by my prom dress when I was in high school. It was colour purple with gold and shimmery stuffs.
(Sorry for the poor quality of pictures. I just used my celphone camera)

Colors I used:
CARONIA Purple Pumch Frosted
CHIC Gold Glitter Glaze
CARONIA Colorless
Acrylic (Non-toxic) Metallic Grey

Other materials I used:

Transparent Scotch Tape
      (you can use a non-transparent)
Paint Brush (small)

***Have the scotch tape pre-cut on same manner I did on the picture

Stick the pre-cut scotch tape on your nails on a diagonal way, leaving the upper part expose/bare

Paint purple on the bare part of the nails.
You don't have to worry on the lower part because the scotch tape will keep the nail paint on the upper part only.

Top the purple colour with the gold glitters. Put as much layer as you want.

Draw random lines above the painted part of the nails using the metallic grey acrylic paint. The lines will just give your nails an edge, but should not cover the whole part

Let it dry. Once dry, remove the scotch tapes and coat the whole nails with colorless nail polish. This will make the whole nail shinier.



  1. I love your nail art design. I am using scotch tape too but on french tip only. I find it hard to do nail art but with your tutorial I might try one time.

    Thanks for following my blog and I look forward to reading your post.
