Add Glitz and Glamour to Any Look With This Sparkly Mani DIY Nichole Vasti October 1, 2016 All Stories, Beauty, Mani Monday, Nails 84 Comments With the craziness of the holidays behind us let’s take some time to pamper ourselves and think about all the exciting things 2016 has in store. There’s no better way to kick off the New Year than with an easy, sparkly manicure. It’s sure to add some glitz and glamour to any look in arsenal and crafting the mani will allow you to have some, probably, much needed me-time. What You Need: essie – all in one essie – over the edge essie – summit of style Orly – Glosser Instructions: 1. Apply your “all in one base coat”. 2. Polish all nails using “over the edge”. 3. Once your nails are completely dry collect a generous amount of chunky glitter onto the brush. I used “summit of style” by essie. Begin to dab the glitter at the base of your nail. Move the brush in a circular motion so that it fills in the base of your nail. 4. Secure your nails with “Glosser”. Warning this may take some time to dry due to the excessive glitter used. You do not want to smudge the thick polish so please be careful! For more nail art inspiration, head over to our Beauty section and follow @nichole_bryanna on Instagram!
