What’s the best way to create stunning glitter nails? 

You’ll need

  • Nail clipper, files and a buffing block
  • Base coat
  • Top coat
  • Polish 
  • Nicole Diary Glitters
  • Nail polish remover
  • Cotton pads
  • Small brush – an eyeshadow brush works well
  • Moisturizer
  • Paper to catch any glitter that spills

Here’s how to put this idea into motion and get dazzling glitter acrylic nails:

  • I’m guessing that, if you wished, you’ve already applied acrylic nail tips.
  • File and trim your nails so the glitter has a good base to adhere to. 
  • Wipe your nails with polish remover to remove any filing debris and natural oils. 
  • Lay out the paper – never waste your sparkles!
  • Apply a thin layer of base coat.
  • Roll your nail in the glitter, gently pushing any lumps flat with your finger. 
  • Shake any loose glitter off onto the paper.
  • Reroll if necessary.
  • Brush off the excess.
  • Dry thoroughly.
  • Add several top coats and allow to dry in between.
  • Finish by massaging in moisturizer.

There are some variations to this method that produce different finishes:

  • Using a colored polish under the glitter can create some unusual effects.
  • Instead of rolling your entire nail in glitter, sprinkle it on instead. The look is looser and more random and works especially well with colored polish.
  • Mix glitter and iridescent sequins to give a unique, but extremely beautiful, shimmery appearance to your nails. 

As always, though, with nail art, experiment and find a look you love!
