I am really in love with mint nails, I think the shade is so pretty and it is up there as one of my favorite colours. I see a lot of manicures combining mint with black and gold so I wanted to try it.
My base colour is Deborah Lippmann’s Flowers in Her Hair, the best mint polish I own. The application is so smooth, this is a rare thing with pale colours, normally they are so thick and hard to paint.
To create the striped look I used a flat nail art brush and simply swept the black and gold colours across my nail. I really do love these 3 colours together, and I will definitely be doing it again.
The gold I used is by OPI called Love. Angel. Music. Baby, this is the perfect gold colour. It dries matte but has a shimmer to it, I find myself grabbing for this a lot, especially for stamping. I may need to buy a spare for fear of running out of this forever.
