There’s something about a fresh manicure that always makes me feel instantly put together. With winter in full swing and the new year upon us, I decided to elevate my typical vampy nail with a touch of gold shimmer. The pairing of oxblood and glittery gold manages to feel like a fresh take on a classic color combination, while the polka dots add in an element of fun. I loved that this plum and gold manicure only took a few minutes to do, and due to the playful nature of the glittery gold dots, my inner perfectionist had the chance to take the day off as I placed the polka dots over each nail.
Here’s how to do it:
1. Apply a base coat, followed by two coats of a your oxblood polish.
2. Once the polish has dried, dip a q-tip in glittery gold polish and then dab it on your nail with two to three polka dots per nail. I used Sally Hansen’s Golden-I.
3. Once the gold polka dots dry, top off the manicure with top coat.
