We all know that glitter is great for crafting and for fashion too! Since I'm a very lazy person I always look for easy yet fun ideas. I came up with this fun but very easy nail art idea few weeks ago and it turned out kind'a nice.

Follow this ible and try out this fun and glittery nail art.

Step 1: Materials Needed

For this nail art you'll need:

  1. Clear nail polish,
  2. Black nail polish,
  3. Glitter (2 different colors),
  4. Paint brush (size '0'),
  5. Nail polish remover,
  6. Cotton swab.

Step 2: Base Coat and Main Coat

Clean your nails and apply a coat of clear nail polish for the base coat. Allow it to dry.

Apply a thin layer of black nail polish or any color of your choice.

Allow the main coat to dry.

Step 3: Applying the Glitter (1st Coat)

Now, we'll complete one nail at a time.

Apply another thin layer of black nail polish on a nail and apply the glitter of your choice quickly by following the instructions given below.

At first, dip the tip of the paint brush into the blue glitter. Apply the blue glitter by smudging the brush 2-3 times in the middle of the nail. Do the same for all nails.

Step 4: Applying the Glitter (2nd Coat)

Again, dip the tip of the brush into the golden glitter,

This time, apply the golden glitter along the tip by smudging the brush gently 2-3 times on the tip.

Make sure to apply the glitter as quickly as possible, before the main coat dries.

Do same for all nails. You can also apply the black nail polish individually for all nails before applying the glitters. Apply another coat of clear nail polish for protection if you want to.

Step 5: Final Touches

Looks very pretty. I would definitely suggest the final clear coat over the glitter so it doesn't snag on clothes or scratch your skin.
