Metallic Glitter Nails Tutorial
Monday, October 31, 2011
My nails for the Cosmo Blog Awards. I had originally wanted to have glitter somewhere in my outfit but it wasn't working out so I went with my nails instead. I got this tutorial from a Beautylish newsletter I received and thought hey perfect time to use my glitter pieces from Born Pretty.
What You'll Need :
- Base Coat
- Metallic Gold
- Metallic Silver
- Dotting Tools
- Glitter Pieces
- Top Coat
I started off with OPI Nail Envy as my base and did two coats of AVON SpeedDry+ "Twilight Blue" and let that speedily dry.
Taking my dotting tools I dropped a few drops of China Glaze "2030" onto a piece of foil paper and dipped one of the smallest dots into it and onto my nails in random areas on all my nails
A metallic silver would work so much better but not having one to hand Deborah Lippmann "Kitty" (from Octobers Glossy Box) was the next best thing. Repeating the same steps as I did above.
Cutting pieces of gold glitter sheets into smaller pieces. ( You may want to do this before you anything ) I did a thin coat of Save The Nail "45 seconds coat" and using a toothpick/cocktail stick I picked them up and randomly put them onto my nails, even overlapping some of the metallic spots.
Repeat on your opposite hand and viola (: finished.
What do you think? Enjoy the sparkles on nails?
