When the seasons change from warm to cold (and then freezing if you live in Canada!) most manicures tend to lean towards those dark rich colors. Now don’t get me wrong I love a good navy or black Mani but sometimes its nice to inject a pop of color on your fingertips. I decided to take things a step further and add some festive glitter to my Winter manicure.
Here’s what you’ll need:
-The base color of your choice (I went with this beautiful purple from Julep)
-A good topcoat
-A makeup brush
-Paint your colors with at least two coats of your polish
-Let them dry completely (this is very important or you’ll just have to start over!
-Cut the reinforcements in half and place one half at the base of each nail to form a half moon
-Paint only the bottom part of your nail (under the reinforcement) with a swipe of top coat
-Sprinkle the glitter onto your nail
-Brush off any glitter that didn’t stick with the make up brush
-Remove the reinforcement carefully
-Cover your entire nail in another layer of topcoat
Enjoy your new festive Winter Manicure!
