In honor of Retro Video Game Month here at Geek Girl Brunch, I’ve decided to tackle one of the world’s most beloved franchises: The Legend of Zelda. With just a few simple steps, you’ll have the cutest mani in all of Hyrule. All you’ll need is gold and black polish, a top coat, a small detail brush, and some vases to break for ambience (the last bit is optional).
Start with a gold base. Shimmery, metallic, glitter . . . up to you.
On your accent nail, draw a large triangle in black. You can do this freehand or with tape. I did it freehand.
Within the large triangle, draw a smaller, upside down triangle. This is your Triforce outline. Fill in the areas within the center of the Triforce and outside of it with a small brush and the black polish.
You can keep the rest of your nails gold (or black!) but I decided to jazz it up with a black swoop using the brush that came with the bottle, sort of like a diagonal French manicure. Again, you can do this freehand or with tape to create a straight line. If you use tape, be sure that the base color is bone dry and that you peel it off while the black polish is still wet.
Finish it off with a clear top coat and be the envy of your friends.
