Pink and Gold Strip Nails

Just gonna show you guys my most recent nails. It's been a while since my last nail post! I haven't been spicing up my nails as much lately, it's usually just one colour and I'm good to go.

I felt like some neutral colours and decided on a pretty pink and gold combo.

I first painted my nails the pink/peach colour and I used tape for the straight edges, painted on the gold and then peeled the tape back, then added top coat. Easy peasy!

For added cuteness and oomph and stuck 3 mini pearls onto my ring finger along the strip.

I really like how it's simple but just glamming it up a little. You could try different colour combos or sticking more rhinestones on all the fingers instead of one. This is just an inspiration :)

Flash - I love how the gold reflects the light with flash, it's so pretty!

Colours I used. TBN - Barely Nude (I got this at my local chemist like ages ago, I think they sold for $2?) It's a pretty light salmon pink colour.
Face Of Australia - White Gold (from their Molten Metallics collection from last year)

And the pearl nail art wheel I got from ebay (here), for less than $5. I love the pearl wheel cos it comes in different sizes and doesn't actually limit itself to nails only, you can totally use it to glam up whatever you want with super glue or something :) and there's like 1000 pieces haha.

Hope this inspired you to do your own stripey nails :)


  1. this totally inspires me to do stripey nails =]
    but sometimes i feel like the effort for painting, designing, drying is not worth it cos it chips off in the next week or so lol zzz
