Nail Trends: Gold and Glitter

[vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=””][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_single_image image=”1452″ alignment=”center” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”large”][vc_column_text]Hello all you beautiful people! Today is our last post in our nail special, and believe me, I’ve saved the best for last. Personally speaking, I’ve spent hours looking up gold hued nails online. I think gold, in combination with nudes, pastels, is PERFECT! The last look decoded by Harsha, and myself, combines the best of all words: nudes, gold dust and nail stickers.

In our last round of nail trends, today we conceptualise our very own take on gold and glitter. As you know, this is a part of our special ‘Summer Cool’, we decide to feature SEVEN of the freshest and classy nail trends with experts from Imperial Hotel, Delhi.

The concept

The intent was simple. To de-code some great palettes, try my hands at global ramp trends, and not losing my vision, while doing so. I am a 29-year old blogger and I do NOT appreciate over-the-top, loud, floral prints on my hands, or anybody’s hands, whatsoever. Each of these curated looks are a take on popular trends like pastels, gold and glitter, stickers, and bright colours. Our idea was to bring a sense of elegance and creativity at the best, and we believe that our touted experts Hayley Louise Dack, Director, Imperial Spa and Salon and nail artist Harsha Rawat, did just that.

The basics

It’s very important you make sure your nails are clean, buffed and filed before you start any nail tutorial. For me, Harsha, the nail artist at Imperial Salon prepped my nails Apricot Kernel Scrub, Potpourri Aqua Soak and Hand Butter. She also used sanitizers as well as a cuticle oil for healthy, strong nails. If you’re big on nail art at home, I suggest you buy basics like nail hardeners, cuticle cream and oils to make sure you do it right.

How To:

  1. Apply a base coat. If needed, use it twice so that you get a bit of sheen on your nails.
  2. Now take some gold dust on your nail brush and apply it sparingly on just one of the nails (we chose the ring finger again). As you can see, Harsha carefully placed the dust avoiding the tip of the nail.

    1.  Keep the stickers you want to use ready.
    2.  Apply nail art stickers using a fine metal nail tool to position it correctly. Make sure you don’t overload your nails with big sticks or too many stickers: the idea is to keep it elegant and beautiful.

    1.  A great tip to secure the stick-on art onto the nails is to press it so that there are no air bubbles under it.
    2. To ensure you make the most of the theme, use a top coat of Gold Glitter from Glitter Collection.

    Last Word: This is one of the most intricate and bedazzling designs I’ve ever come across. I would love to sport it on all days, but occasions like weddings, or events would be ideal for this nail art to shine![/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1465″ alignment=”center” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”large”][vc_column_text]

    About Bio Sculpture

    One of the differential factors that make Bio Sculpture a touted brand is because it is the ONLY brand to have undergone an independent clinical trial and to have received a 5 star safety rating. The spa collection (can be used at home) has a variety of collections, and each of these pigments lasts for about 10 days (without fading). On the plus side, the spa collection contains botanicals, vitamins and anti-oxidants. With a highly trained staff, the Imperial Salon is a great place to try The Bio Sculpture Gel Range. The coating is flexible, protects and conditions your nails and lasts for about 3 weeks. All nail polishes are toluene free, DBP and formaldehyde free.
