6. Rose gold drips
Think artsy drips of rose gold sliding down your fingertips for a fun, unforgettable look that will have everyone asking where you got them done.
7. Rose gold nail art
Paint cute, quirky patterns in rose gold for a surprising touch of chic! Stripes and polka dots are a safe bet, or go for elaborate geometric patterns and designs to make a statement.
8. Reverse rose gold French manicure
This new take on the classic French manicure is made even better by the addition of rose gold. Plus, the combination of these versatile shades means they’ll probably complement a large part of your wardrobe. Score!
9. Rose gold and sparkles
Want something simple, but also with a little sparkle? This rose gold hue tends to work with most colours, so don’t be afraid to grab a glitter polish in a standout shade for that extra oomph.
10. Rose gold stripe
Another trend spotted over at the Spring 2018 runway was a single stripe painted vertically or across nails, so why not try it out with the hippest shade of the moment?
You can also experiment alternating the single vertical and horizontal stripe for a standout look!
