To start off this manicure I used a metallic gold, Essie Good As Gold. For a contrasting effect, I suggest using a metallic polish as the base. I used a different design on each nail, but you could do all the nails the same or just have a design on one accent nail. For two of the nails I filled in half of the nail with black. On the middle nail I used a black nail art polish to draw vertical stripes. I painted an X on the pinky nail and then filled in the top and bottom with vertical stripes. I finished it off with the Out The Door top coat.
