How to create gold and purple electric nails

Feeling a little out of this world? Want to show off your electric personality? This purple and gold stamped manicure packs a pretty punch. Stamped designs are great for beginners because the stamper is easy to hold and transfers a precise design without the need for a fine detail brush.
To achieve this dramatic look, you’ll need a dark base color. Black gel polish makes the purple glitter look more intense. Once it’s set in place, the metallic gold will give the design a dose of drama that’s perfect for Mardi Gras or any celebration. Just remember to clean your stamping tools thoroughly after each use to keep them in tip-top condition.
