Manicure to Try: Deep Blue and Gold Flakes

Manicure to Try: Deep Blue and Gold Flakes
Micaela Rossato

Inspired by the gorgeous marriage of blue and gold in a lapis lazuli gemstone,
 this bold pattern is more sophisticated than leopard—but no less daring. Get the look in three easy steps.

STEP 1 Apply two coats of a deep 
navy blue. Try MAC Cosmetics Nail Lacquer in Spirit of Truth ($16; Allow to dry for 10 minutes so you won’t leave any imprints when working with the foils.

STEP 2 Dip a toothpick into a topcoat, then use the end to attach a gold flake. We like to us Art Club by 
Color Club Gold Foil Flakes ($5; Place it down, and carefully flatten 
 the edges with your fingertip. Repeat 
 using smaller and larger pieces to 
 create a varied design.

STEP 3 Add topcoat to seal.
