‘Tis the season for glitter, and what better way to inject some sparkle into the festive season than with some fun nail art.
Now, this isn’t strictly nail art, but it is perfect for those who don’t have the time, patience or coordination to wield a dotter or fiddle with tape. This ombre glitter nail creates the illusion of hours spent in the nail salon, but it can all be done from the comfort of your own home in under 10 minutes. Here’s how:
- Apply a clear base coat
- Apply 2-3 coats (or until opaque) of your chosen base shade. Now for the fun part…
- Apply your glitter polish, starting at the tip of your nails and brushing down, only going as far as half or three quarters of the way down your nail. Concentrate most of the glitter at the tips of your nails to create that ombre effect.
- Seal in the sparkle with a top coat.
We told you it would be easy! So in just 4 steps, you can shine as bright as the star on top of your Christmas tree!
Also, special mention to the *Barry M’s Nail Paint in Twilight. We were so happy that we could finally use the sparkling polish. Practically a disco ball in a bottle, it is the perfect way to transform your nails for the party season. For a glitter nail polish, the longevity of the nail paint has surprised us. It’s been 5 days, and we haven’t found any random specks of glitter on our clothes. Yay!
Will you be giving your nails the festive treatment this month?
