Glitter Dipped Holiday Nails: GetGlammedUp - Everyday Beauty, Simplified

Glitter Dipped Holiday Nails

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

Happy Holidays everyone! I hope you all are getting excited for Christmas (or any other holiday you might celebrate).. considering it is only about 3 days away. Christmas is the perfect time to play around with nail designs since it is all about glitter, golds, greens, reds, purples, anything festive! This picture doesn't quite do this look justice, but it is a dark forest green with gold glitter that has some red sparkles in it.

I started off with my base coat (Sally Hansen Complete Care Extra Moisturizing 4-in-one Treatment), then I applied Orly's Enchanted Forest nail polish.
Taking an glitter you want (i used Sinful Color's All About You), go over the very tips of your nail. Then, wipe the brush off so there's hardly any on there. Holding the brush vertical, very gently pull some of the glitter down in little thin lines. Layer on another coat or two on the very tips, so there is a gradual change in the amount of glitter. This gives it that faded affect. I finished it off with Seche Vite topcoat. Be sure to wait for it to dry before the topcoat so it doesn't smudge.
