I call this one my volcanic ash and glitter manicure.
Because anything+glitter= awesome.
Base colour (I used cherry red)
Chunky clear glitter polish
Silver fine glitter polish
Step 1: Base colour
Really, any colour will do.
Apply 2-3 coats for to achieve opacity.
Step 2: First layer of glitter
After your base colour has dried, carefully paint your chunky clear glitter from the base of your nails (cuticle area) upward. Paint 2/3 of the nail, leaving the tip exposed.
Step 3: Sponging
Apply a drop or two of your silver glitter polish to the tip of your cosmetic sponge
Step 4: Sponged
Apply silver polish on the sponge to the tip of your nail, slightly overlapping the chunky glitter.
Step 5: More layers?
At this point, I sponged another layer of black polish to the tips. Apply a clear topcoat to protect your manicure!
