I have a small pot of lose gold glitter that’s been sitting in my makeup box for years now. I think it was one of those free samples from Sephora. I bring it out on on Halloween and the random costume party when I need some glitter on my face or body. Okay, who am I kidding? I rarely have a use for gold glitter. Well…I finally found a use for it. Gold glitter manicure!!! Here’s how you can DIY.
Clear Base + top coat
Solid nail polish #1, try a neutral or gray
Sold nail polish #2, try a light color (Essie Ballet Slippers)
Lose gold glitter
- Paint base coat and paint 1 coat of solid color #1 on all nails except for your ring finger, where you should use solid color #2.
- Paint the second coat on each nail. Before the nail dries, take the glitter and sprinkle it on all nails, except for the ring finger, where you will dip the tip of the nail in the glitter pot.
- Wait 5 minutes. Paint top coat
