One of the major trends in nail art right now is using materials other than nail polish to create unique, textured designs. This pictorial will show you how to create this amazing glitter nail art using shimmery powder. The best part is that you can create this manicure using items that you already have in your home. All you need is glitter powder, black nail polish, clear base polish and matte top coat. Now follow the simple steps below and recreate this amazing manicure in no time!
Step 1: Apply a clear coat to all of your nails and let it dry for a few minutes. It should protect your nails from cracking and help your manicure last longer.
Step 2: Add two to three coats of the black matte nail polish on your nails.
Step 3: Remove the cap from the loose glitter. Add the glitter powder on your nails while the black nail polish is still wet. To do that, dip a clear nail polish brush in your glitter and apply it on your nails, starting from the centre of your nails and moving to the tips. Use patting movements to distribute the dust evenly. If you are not using a brush, you can also dab your finger into the jar and gently apply the dust until your nail is covered with glitter.
Step 4: Once you are happy with the final result, remove the excess glitter with a fan brush. If needed, repeat the previous steps until all your nails are evenly covered with dust.
Step 5: Wait until everything is dry and then add a final coat of your matte top coat. To dry your nails faster, dip your nails in a bowl of cold water. This will give extra glossy finish and will dry the polish faster. Wait several minutes and apply a second coat of clear nail polish over the glitter. The top coat seals the glitter, holds it back from falling away and maintains the final look for more days.
