Gold Stripes

It feels like ages since i did a post so here's a really nice simple design that had a great effect. I own so many silver nail polishes or silver glitter nail polishes that i really need to get a gold one. The only one i have is this one below and it isn't as glittery as i'd like so i had to try and jazz it up a bit without loosing the gold colour.

I didn't have much time to do this so i just used my models own nail art pen to create the stripes. I originally wanted to do the stripes criss crossing but i thought that might be a bit too much and overshadow the gold.

For this i used 17 nail polish (not sure what shade) and models own black nail art pen. i didn't use a base coat and just applied 2 coats of the gold 17 polish followed by the the stripes on top once the gold had dried.

I was pretty pleased with how straight i managed to get the lines and how little i managed to get on my skin (for a change!) It wasn't anything complicated but it looked quite cute :) 

please let me know though of any good really glittery gold nail polishes!
