In under 10 minutes you can get these trendy holiday sparkle tips! I added a matte design which you can keep or omit… it’s up to you!Here’s what you’ll need:
- Solid Navy Nail Polish – Sailor by Zoya
- Gold Glitter Polish – Hors D’ oeuvres by Essie
- Matte Polish – Matte About You by Essie (Optional)
- Striping Brush (Optional)
Step 1: Start off with 1 coat of solid navy nails.
Step 2: Using your glitter nail polish, wipe off any excess nail polish on a paper towel. Starting from the base of the nail closest to your cuticle gently glide your glitter polish 1/2 way up your nail towards your tips. By wiping off the excess polish this will create a glitter fade effect on your nails.
Step 3: Seal in your design with 1 coat of your favorite dry fast top coat.
The next step is optional.
Step 3: (Optional) Using a striping brush, paint 2 upside down “V” shapes (or arrow heads) over the solid part of your nails at the tips & you’re good to go!
