Give your manicure a makeover with gilded, graphic gold nails.
Ladies, not all nail art is created equal. While we love the look of fun and funky patterns and colors, it’s VERY easy for this trend to border on tacky instead of tasteful. So scale back the nail art and opt for decorative designs that are statement making but still sophisticated.

Get The Look
#1 – Mix & Match with Minx
The craze isn’t over yet – we’re STILL obsessed with Minx Manis. Similar to shrink wrap, minx are applied using heat and pressure, and are a fast and easy way to get standout nails in major metallics and crazy patters.
We loved the Nail Bar’s mismatched metallic version – gold, silver and black scales?! Yes please!

#2 – Simple & Sleek
Don’t get caught up in a craze and pair mismatched nails with bold makeup and wild hair. You’ll end up looking like an extra in a Nicki Minaj music video (which is not a good thing just to be clear).
Let your fingers do the fashion talking and pick a hairstyle that’s understated but still slightly sexy.
One of our fave hairstylists, Gladene Douglas of Soave Salon, smoothed out hair without flattening it, using a hairdryer with comb attachment coupled with Silk Essentials serum to de-frizz without losing body.

#3 – Be-Jeweled
Add an earring to complete the look and play off of the metallics.
