Hello nail art lovers!

I have wanted to combine blue and gold for some time. This color combination reminds me of a circus tent I went to as a child to watch an amazing circus show. So I will show you a nail design I created featuring these colors. I am not sure which is the main color here, blue or black but I still love how this manicure turned out. It is pretty obvious how the design was put up together but I will put a few words on the process and give some tips. That’s what I do, right :)

First, paint some of your nails blue and some of them black.
Paint your nails with these two colors. For this manicure I have two coats on as the colors I used are not sheer formulas and have good coverage. Make sure to leave some nails clean so that you will add the gold accent to this nail design.

Then, add gold.
You can use any gold color you have and love. The gold I used for this manicure is a textured nail polish with a clear base so I had some difficulties to build it up enough. Have in mind that using glitter is the hardest way if you wish to achieve full coverage in particular.

Last, add metal studs.
To finish this manicure I added some metal studs at the base of blue and black nails. I like how the gold hue of my studs complement the gold nails in this design. I attached the studs using a drop of clear nail polish. If your embellishments have a flat base you do not have to necessarily use a special glue or any other tool to stick them to nails.

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed!
