A Festival for Your Fingers: 10 Nail Art Ideas Using Silver and Gold
Getting ready for the festive season might have been a nail-biting experience so now that it’s time to celebrate – pamper your nails with some glitter and glam. When your outfits change every day, your nails might have a tough time keeping up – that’s why we have rounded up 10 great ways to decorate your nails using the classic shades of silver and gold. Here they are:
Simply silver or gorgeously gold
Obviously, first on the list is to have your nails painted in silver or gold depending on the base color of most of your outfits. For this, you can go with matte, glossy or even glitter paint.
Standing out in the crowd
If you want to have some color on your nails, you can paint most of them and have a stand-alone silver or gold nail. Alternatively, you can paint this one nail in stripes of white and gold or white and silver.
For this, you can paint your nails in your favorite shade or just apply a transparent coating. Then apply a glitter-based polish to your tips and lightly add some of it to the center so that it looks like a gradual fade.
If you like being creative, use your glitter paint to create a work of art on each nail. You can play with spots, stripes, stars and even color some whole.
Here’s a good tip
You can go for a sparkly version of the French manicure where the base is clear or nude and each nail is topped with silver or gold glitter.
Half and half
This is another version of the gradient glitter effect where half your nail (horizontal, vertical or even diagonal) is one color and the other half is silver or gold.
This is an easy one. Simply use your favorite color nail paint and after it dries, use a top coat of light gold or silver shimmer nail paint.
Best of both worlds
If you can’t decide which way to go – use both silver and gold nail paints. The gradient or ombre effect looks quite spectacular with these two colors and it can make any outfit pop.
A twist on the traditional French manicure, this design involves painting the moon of your nails with silver or gold nail paint. Again you can go with glitter, matte, glossy or metallic and you can choose to have a neutral or bright color for the rest of your nail.
You can light up your nails with glitter nail art in the form of stickers and 3D designs that include specs, rhinestones, stars, bows and more.
