Glitter Nails

     Last week, I mentioned I was inspired by Pintrest to paint my nails glittery and you guys wanted to see it. So I am going to step it up and today I am going to show you how I did it. It  was super easy, and super subtle, but when the sunlight caught the sparkles... I was smitten!! I cant wait to try it with different colors and glitters next time!
- First I buffed and polished my nails before beginning so they were super smooth.

- I put on two thick coats of Essie 3-Way Glaze and let them dry completely.

- I then used NYC Starry Silver Glitter and applied to the tips of my nails by just dabbing (instead of brushing) the brush over and over. This let the glitter transfer where I wanted it, instead of it dripping down the nail. 

- After the glitter was where I wanted it, I put a layer of OPI RapiDry Top Coat over the entire nail, this time working from the bottom up, so I wouldn't get glitter on the other part of the nail. 

Finished result... glossy, sparkly, glittery and fun nails! 


  1. funnnnn! i need some sparkle polish in my life!

  2. a girl can always some extra sparkle :)

  3. These rock so hard. You are ace, my friend! :D I must try this! The dabbing idea is FABULOUS.

  4. I've seen this all over pinterest but didn't think I'd be able to pull it off. Must try it now!

  5. TOTALLY LOVE THIS! Nails fit for a princess. I wonder if Kate Middleton got the memo? Thnx for posting!
