Pretty in Pink Glitter Nail Tutorial


Products L to R: Rimmel London Try Harder double duty base coat, NYC 170 Oh Soho Sweet, NYC 238 MoMa, Art Club nail art lacouer in silver glitter, Studio iridescent polish and LA Splash nail art glitter in Trickery.

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.




Let me know what you think in the comments below and if you try this look out for yourself at home please share your pictures with me on Facebook or Twitter, I would love to see them.

Love,
Sarah
