Step 1: Tools

You will need:

-nail polish of your choice, i chose black
-fan brush
-fine glitter*
-optional: base coat**

*white glitter covers best for most colors, but any color you have will work
**a coat of white under any color tends to prevent staining

Step 2: Base Color

While your polish is still wet, pick up some glitter with the fan brush and dab it onto your nail, making sure to cover the whole surface

Step 4: Top Coat

Paint your chosen color over the glitter. Make sure not to paint it too thick, or the texture won't come through!
Let it dry and the texture will begin to show.

Step 5: Finished!

The texture is really neat, you'll want to keep touching it!
Enjoy your new nail art :)


I like the textured nail polish look and this technique is great because you don't have to buy new nail polish and you can make it in any color you want :)
