Holiday Nails: All that glitters is gold

Email |
By lesleykat · November 16, 2010

Hey Kittens! What I love most about the fall and winter is the fact that holidays during these seasons give us PLENTY of reasons to wear crazy fun nails! The more glitter, the BETTER. No matter what your age, wearing glitter around the holidays is totally acceptable.

May I present to you a holiday nail suggestion: Glitter-tipped gold. To create this look I used Sephora By OPI Charge It! as my base color. Two coats give a nice opaque, metallic finish. After letting them dry for a few minutes, I then applied a dab of clear (glitter polish would work well too) and dipped the tips of the nails right into the glitter. The glitter I used was LA Splash Lady Luck. This glitter is especially cool because it has small glitter pieces as well as larger ones and it reflects golds, pinks, and greens.

Do you have any special nail art or colors you like to use around the holidays?

That looks awesome! Do you know where else you can get nail glitter?

You should be able to get nail glitter at most beauty supply stores. This particular glitter I got Duane Reade. You can also check places like Ulta or drug stores. You can use small craft glitter if you cannot find cosmetic or nail glitter. Only use it on your nails and NOT your face. Good luck!

I love this. Can you clarify how you applied the Lear before you dipped? Also, how does it get the faded glitter look? I feel like you applied the 'dab' of clear fairly precisely, no? THANKS!
