For these matte & shinny black & gold nails I first painted my nails black.
Then used my matte top coat.
Once that is completely dry, I used my straight french tip manicure stickers from my Sally Hansen kit to block off the black areas & make stripes for the gold.
Then I took off just the bottom stickers to use shinny top coat for the tips.
For the ring finger I also took off the sticker second from the base to use shinny top coat.
Once the shinny top coat is almost completely dry (if it dries all the way the stickers might get to stiff to pull off) you can pull off all of the stickers.
