Get The Look: Gold Metallic Nails #Beauty

Metallic gold nails are a fashion trend that for me, will always be hot (sort of like high sheen black manicure…very sophisticated and totally sexy). Nail polish won’t achieve this minx manicure, but anyone can get them with sticker wraps, and the one I love is Metallic Gold Nails Rock Wraps, available for about $8 from the UK.


The benefit of this beauty trick, aside from the crazy gorgeous shiny effect, is that it doesn’t stain or damage your nails like regular polish or salon wraps might. There are also a lot of really neat beauty looks with nail wraps that you can’t achieve with just polish, such as a denim manicure, a lace textured manicure, and more (and all for eight dollars)- it’s awesome!

How To Apply Metallic Gold Nails Minx Manicure Nail Wraps {Beauty Tutorial}

  • Choose the wraps you want to try (obviously I recommend the metallic gold, it’s my favorite)
  • Match the individual gold metallic sticker wrap to your fingernail (if none are a close fit, you can trim them) and place it on
  • Blast each wrapped nail with the heat from your blowdryer to warm it up, then smooth the sticker onto fingernail and over the edge
  • File to remove the extra and shape your nail
  • The end results? Gorgeous metallic gold nails that look like these:

      Nail polish doesn’t damage your nails it strengthens them… Nail polish remover on the other hand is a different story… Remover is very damaging
