STEP 1
''File and buff your nails, apply a base coat and add two glossy layers of green. Here we have used WAH London 'Be Better Not Bitter', a perfectly rich deep green!''

STEP 2
''Grab a make-up sponge and blot on some black nail polish.''

STEP 3
''Starting at the tip, dab the sponge towards the centre of the nail. The more you dab the less polish is on the sponge, this gives the graduated effect.''

STEP 4
''Add an extra sponging to the tips to give some real depth!'

STEP 5 
''For detail we are using the WAH London gold striping tape found in our Liquid Metal Nail Edit Kit.''

STEP 6 
''Add a stripe towards the tip third of the nail near your cuticle and snip off with some nail scissors.''

STEP 7
''Apply a generous layer of topcoat, we use our WAH London 'Classy Glassy Glossy' topcoat for a glass-like finish!
