Gold Flakes


I loved how my natural nails looked in the sheer polish so much that I had to use it again.  This time, I found this pack of gold and silver flakes from 5 Below and I’ve been dying to use them.  Naturally, I went for the gold, and I loved how cool this mani turned out.  It’s really easy to do and doesn’t take long at all.

Items Needed:

  • Gold Nail Flakes
  • Tweezers
  • Toothpick (Optional)
  • Top Coat
  • Base Coat

Polish Used:


Step 1: After your base coat, apply two coats of your sheer pink polish.


Step 2: Now on your wet nails (if your nail is dry apply a top coat), using your tweezers pull some gold flakes and apply to your nail any way that you like.  To get smaller pieces, a tooth pick can help break off tiny pieces.

Step 3:  Any gold flakes that are on your cuticle, move them on to your nail so that the gold won’t lift during your wear.


Step 4: Apply your favorite top coat and you’re all done.
