NOTD: Golden Mint Cream

This nail art was inspired by a post on Lizzie's blog a while back; I just thought it was a gorgeous colour combination and looked so pretty and classy.
I used three coats of ELF's 'Mint Cream' as my base, allowing the polish to dry between coats. I then carefully painted on thin stripes of an un-named W7 gold polish (it was part of a set from TK Maxx) using a fine paintbrush, which was about £1.30 from my local craft shop. I sealed the design with Essie's Good To Go topcoat for a smooth, glossy finish. I really like how this looks, I just wish my gold was a bit more obvious - it's quite hard to see unless it catches the light. Still, it's pretty and not too flashy, I guess - perfect for work!



What do you think? Do you like stripey nails?
