By special request, today I will show you an easy way to recreate the gold stripe nail art from the recent Fall 2015 Delpozo show at NYFW. This super chic nail art look was a huge hit, popping up all over my Instagram feed. The beauty is in the simplicity and the unique blend of shiny and matte finishes.
The design was created by Julie K for Essie, who painted the gold stripes freehand. As reported on Glamour.com, she first gave nails an all-over coat of Matte About You before layering stripes of Good As Gold, Rock at the Top, and Second Shine Around topcoat down the center of each nail.
