Nails: Gilded Red


What You'll Need:
 Deborah Lippmann - "Here Comes the Queen" [or any fine flaky foil]
Zoya - "Salma" [or any red]
Makeup Sponge



Steps:
1. Apply 1-2 coats of Salma (optional: ignore ring finger for now)

2. Apply "Here Comes the Queen" onto a small corner of the makeup sponge; this soaks up the clear polish, leaving a concentrated amount of sparkle.

3. Gently dab the sponge on the top of each nail and work your way about 1/3rd down.

4. (optional) Apply 1-2 coats of a silver polish on the ring finger. Add "Salma" to the other side of the makeup sponge, and dab onto the nail from bottom up. Concentrate most of the polish on the tip, creating a smooth gradient about 3/4ths up the nail. Repeat step 2 and dab "Here Comes the Queen" onto the entire nail surface.

And there you have it!
