Look up to the New Year’s eve sky for mani inspiration and put firework sparkles on your fingertips!
This tutorial (via thebeautydepartment.com) is SO simple, SO pretty and perfect to wear on New Years!
You can use any colour combination and a dense glitter polish, but a black base and gold glitter (as shown) most closely resembles a starry, sparkly night.
This is really easy and super quick.
Step 1: Paint your well-shaped nails one base colour and allow to dry properly.
Step 2: Use a very thin nail art brush to line the tips of your nails with glitter.
Step 3: Drag the glitter with your nail art brush ever so gently, pulling the glitter to about halfway down the nail’s length. You want the glitter to fade to nothing.
Step 4: Go back and line the tips with more glitter to make it look more dense at the top.
Step 5: Seal the job with a clear top coat – this will protect your art work and help the glitter to settle flat.
Alternatively, you could apply the fading glitter from the moons of your nails (as shown above).
Simple and elegant. Try it out and tell us what you think!
