My New Year’s Eve plans are pretty low key this year, but I still wanted to do something special and maybe a little glittery.
I’d been wracking my brain for ideas, when my co-worker showed off her latest manicure. The dark polish topped with glitter with just what I had in mind, so I had to copy her.
Guys, this manicure could not be easier to do. I love that it’s slightly edgy due to the dark polish, and the glitter is all kinds of fun! I was going to call it nail art, but it’s just not that complicated.
Want to try this look on your own?
- nail file
- cuticle stick
- base coat – I love Orly Bonder.
- Julep Stevie polish (or other dark nail polish)
- glitter top coat (Sally Hansen Big Glitter Top Coat is similar to what I used.)
- quick dry top coat – I used Seche Vite, my fave.
- Sally Hansen No More Mistakes Clean-Up Pen
The key to any successful manicure is a good base to start with, so begin by filing your nails and pushing back your cuticles.
Add your base coat and let dry.
For best results with the glitter, I recommend dipping your brush back in the bottle after each brush stroke. That way, you are picking up and placing lots of glitter on your nails. Add a second coat of glitter, if necessary, or to get the exact amount of bling you want.
