Iv'e seen a lot of gradient glitter nail looks on the interwebs lately and I wanted to try it for myself. This girlie glitter nail look is what I came up with. I really like how quick and easy it was to achieve. I think anyone at home can do this for themselves and it doesn't have to cost a pretty penny either.
Step one: Treat/clean your nails. I used Bubble White.
Step two: Apple base coat to prevent your nails from staining and prolong the wear of your varnish.
Step three: Apple your base colour, choose a light natural shade.
Step four: Apply your chosen darker shade to the tips. It does not have to be prefect because you will be covering it with glitter later. Look at mine above, what a mess!
Step five: Apply your chosen glitter, again no special technique here. Just apply to tips.
Step six: Bring out the big guns. I applied a nail art glitter for extra sparkle to the tips.
Step Seven: Apply your top coat to bring all the layers together.
