Nail artist Rose Velez-Miggins created a stunning neutral nail with a vibrant gold detail at the Runa Ray NYFW SS17 show using Dermelect, the official nail sponsor.. Perfect for the holidays? We think so! Here’s how you can create the look at home!
ONE: Prep nails with nail cleaner and apply a strengthening base coat.
TWO: Apply two coats of Dermelect Naturale.
THREE: Apply a manicure-extending top coat and allow to dry.
FOUR: With Dermelect Diggin’ You, create the inverted “V” (repeat if necessary for color saturation). **Pro Tip: To achieve clean and straight lines, use tape or a nail vinyl and remove immediately after application of Dermelect Diggin’ You.
FIVE: For the gold bar, you can either position a glitter sequin on top of wet lacquer, or allow polish to dry and use Dermelect Nobody’s Fool to pain a thin gold stripe in place.
SIX: Apply a matte top coat over the lines/design only.
