If you’re looking for ways to bring some shine to your fingertips, there’s nothing like a gilded manicure to transform your talons. For Fall 2017, the gilded nail made a statement on the runways at Naeem Khan. With its gleaming surface and intricate shining accents, the gilded mani is certainly perfect for the changing temperatures of autumn. Whether you have a party on your social calendar or you want to light up your fingertips on a regular day, turn to this emerging trend of the gilded nail art look. Take a look at the following examples, which we have curated from Instagram.

Shimmering chrome tips: If gold is far too harsh for your tastes, turn to chrome as an alternative measure. Polish your long rectangular tips with gilded chrome nail polish, with a healthy dose of sparkle. To maintain your colour, seal the deal with a quality clear top coat.
