India-inspired toenail art designs are super easy, yet elegant. This design is best paired with black or red sandals in order to compliment the red, black and gold color scheme. To start, apply a coat of black nail polish. Let the coat of nail polish dry. This will allow the gold glitter to show up more boldy against the black nail polish. You may apply another coat of black nail polish, but for me personally, the nail polish on my toes lasts a long time with just one coat.
