How to make a fairy line with a rose-gold accent

"A woman should be two things," Coco Chanel once said. "She should be classy and fabulous." The most glamorous dress paired with the cutest shoes will make you feel like a million bucks, but if you really want to reach for the stars, try a celestial nail design. Jazz up an otherwise boring French manicure with an iridescent fairy line, holographic nail flakes and rose-gold embellishments.
Use the instructions below to create an accent nail. However, if a low-key, single design doesn't suit the occasion, use the steps as a guideline to embellish all your nails with fairy lines and adornments. When selecting a gold star nail applique to overlay the holographic star, consider an open star design. The overlay should act as a frame, showcasing the nail flake beneath it.
