Mani-Monday: Studded Camo

Studded camouflage items have definitely come back into style and can be seen in any store. With this week’s nail design, I was inspired by this trend. I created a camouflage nail print and then dotted gold down the center of my nail. If you don’t have any studded camo pieces in your closet, why not wear them on your nails! To get this look:
You will need:
Base coat
Light green nail polish
Dark green nail polish
Brown nail polish
Black nail polish
Gold nail polish
Matte top coat
Dotting tool or toothpick
Step 1: First, apply your base coat. Then apply two coats of your light green polish, I used ‘It’s Totally Karma’ by Sephora by OPI. Allow to dry for a few minutes.
Step 2: Now, apply patches of the dark green, brown, and black on the nail. First, using your darker green polish, I used ‘Leaf Him at the Altar’ by Sephora by OPI, make a few randomly places patches. Then, using your brown polish, I used ‘milk chocolate chunk’ by Sephora, repeat the same step and create a few randomly place patches and you can even overlap the green to create a more camo look. Lastly, repeat this step again and over lapping the other colors, but this time using the black polish, I used ‘Where’s the Soiree’ by Color Club.
Step 3: Next, apply your matte top coat. Allow it to dry a few minutes. 
Step 4: Lastly, using your dotting tool or toothpick, dip it into the gold polish, I used ‘Charge It!’ by Sephora by OPI, and create dots down the center of your nail. (You can also use studs if you would like). Applying the gold after applying the matte top coat allows the gold to still have a shine rather than it being matte. Then you’re done! Show off those trendy studded camo nails.
