When paired with a rich metal, like gold, copper, or rust, pastels are easily making their way into the fall season. Pastels, I’ll never quit you.
And with that in mind, we put together a fresh nail art tutorial, specifically for fall that mixes those pastels that I will (probably) always love AND gold…DIY gold foil nails for fall. This do-it-yourself nail art is WAY easier than it looks and it’s super glam / unique.
- Begin with your favorite base coat, and then add two coats of your favorite polish.
- While the polish is still tacky (don’t worry if your polish is quick drying, that’s fine) use a toothpick to add pieces of gold leaf to your nail polish, tapping lightly with your finger to make sure it is completely flat on your nail.
- Finish with a top-coat.
Not a fan of the light hues? Use a bold fall nail polish instead, like a deep forest green or a darker version of our grayish blue for a totally different look.
