When Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev visited Extra at their New York studios, we couldn't help but notice her pink and gold nail art. The subtle-but-sparkly look is a real winner and Nina must think so, too, because she's been wearing it steadily since last month! And back in January, she was wearing a darker version to suit the moody winter season.
Love this look
In our eyes, you can never go wrong with a bit of gold glitter! Pair it with pastel pink and, well, that's even better! Nina's nail art manages to be both soft but daring, and ultra-girly while still maintaining a level of sophistication. In other words, if you want to look "grown up" without letting go of the glitz, this is the look for you!
Best of all, this is a nail art look that's easy to achieve. Want to give it a try? Here's how...
Nina's nail art
Step one: Start by filing your nails into the appropriate shape and pushing back your cuticles.
Step two: Apply a base coat to each nail to protect them from staining and help your polish stay put longer.
Step three: Apply a coat of pale pink polish to each nail, then do it again until the color is opaque.
Step four: Once the pink polish has dried, start with your pinky finger and apply gold glitter polish just to the tip of the nail (as if doing a French manicure). Then, when most of the product has been removed from the brush, gently brush toward the bottom of your nail, stopping halfway down. Do this on the rest of your nails.
Step five: Finish the look with a top coat to keep your manicure shiny and chip-free!
