Mint green and gold is officially one of the most fabulous combinations ever.
This look is super easy and fun to do, but there are a few tips to follow for success.
I began by applying three coats of Revlon’s “Mint”. I let this dry for a few hours so that I was sure it was completely dry.
Next, I used two pieces of scotch tape, with the corners meeting in the middle of my nail. Something really important is that you want to cut the ridged edge off of the tape from where you tore it off so that it’s completely smooth.
I then painted one coat of Orly “Rage” on the two exposed triangles of my nail.
I advise you to work one nail at a time, that way you can peel the tape off immediately, that way it won’t dry and it will come off smooth.
Lastly, I used my LA Color Club nail art polish in “Gold” to outline the triangles. This is optional, but I think it gives it a more finished look, as well as hiding any tiny imperfections from where you tore the tape off!
Finish with a topcoat, and voila!
