Apply Dark Blue Matte Nail Polish with Gold Designs
Edited by Kara, Jen M, Inukshuk, Eng
Hello, you're watching the VisiHow and in this video I will show you how to use a dark matte nail polish and then apply some gold accents to add a little flash.
The matte nail polish is one of the tendencies of the last year or two and is a very fashionable thing to do. When you just apply by itself, it is quite boring, so I will be using a golden glaze to go with it.
Don't forget to have some Q-tips just in case you mess up and nail polish remover should always be right next you too.
So let's start with the blue and do the foundation. For darker colors, well actually any colors of nail polish, but especially a matte nail polish that it is not shiny and does not reflect as much light, the imperfections will be especially visible. I would go for two layers of it.
I'm not going to color this finger and I will explain later why. I am leaving it on purpose.
This is a nice way to design your finger nails if you're going to a party or even a costume party. This sort of design will match an Egyptian costume I suppose. I has a very rich dark blue tone and it will have the gold on it as well. Or if you were wearing a wonder women costume I suppose.
Let's go for the second layer. As you can see, the nails that are still wet look shiny and they still reflect the light and the one that has dried already is absolutely matte and looks velvet a little bit to me as well.
So let's go for a thin layer to get the deeper, richer color. It is very convenient when you don't have to check and touch your nail to see if they are dried or not, you can just look and see.
When you paint your thumb because it is bigger and wider, you can dip your brush in the nail polish, make sure you take more of the nail polish then you would for a regular nail. That way it will do the full coverage.
So I am done with the blue. What I need is the shiny golden glitter. This is what I am going to apply on my uncolored nail.
It is very popular to have one finger colored different but it has to go with all the other fingers.
When it dries off, I will cover it with a second layer. I see that this finger is dry already.
Let's continue. I am going to cover this finger a second time to make it thicker and brighter. I love this nail polish in the light. It is really really shiny and looks like real gold on your finger.
So I am going to use the golden polish for the design on my nails but it doesn't have to be exactly the same on each of my fingers. It can be different. So let's do the corner
Let's make it like this. I made it half and half. Technically I am making a triangle.
I did this one diagonally across the nail. The next one maybe I will do it the opposite side. I will do the bottom. Like this. It is up to you how ever you want to do this.
I think this looks quite nice actually. The contrast between the matte texture and the shiny glitter texture adds a luxuriousness to this. Let's just draw a line on this one like this.
So what can we do with this? Let's make a line that will go diagonally from this corner to this corner.
I would suggest to go for a second layer of the glitter so that we don't have any thin spots and to just make sure that it is bright enough on top.
You could also go for a french style and just do the french line. You could can see the french style in my different video. I did not do a classic french, I chose to do a glittery french. So you could search through VisiHow and take a look. So this is what I have here. Make sure it dries off and make sure you close your nail polish after you use it.
