Dripping Gold

My nails are just dripping in gold. The dripping design has been a really popular on in the beauty industry lately; nail designs, makeup brand, and so much more. It is such a simple nail art design that almost always comes out really cool.

For this design, I used a dotting tool, a small nail art brush and the following polishes:

Gold: Color Club "24° Below"

Nude: Mica No Name

and, of course, my current quick dry top coat Seche Vite.

First thing to do with this design is to paint the base color. For this, I painted two coats of the no name nude by Mica and allowed it to dry longer than I do between most nail art. The reason I did this was because using the dotting tool and brush can drag the polish if it is not dry enough to stick to the nail. Giving it a little more time to dry in between coats can also help significantly.

Next, I used the dotting tool and Color Club "24° Below" and made the drip points on my nails. I like to stager the drops but not too uniformly so that it looks a little more natural. After that, I used the nail art brush to connect the drops to one another. I think it is important with this design to kind of offset everything so that it does not look fake. Once the dripping is connected, I applied a quick dry top coat to seal everything in.

Tell me what you think!
