Nail Tutorial: A Glittery New Years Mani

Was anyone else excited for the new year? I know I was! 2013 means a lot of big things for me: turning 18, graduating from high school, and starting college. To usher in the new year, I decided to do a super easy but still glam manicure. Keep reading if you want to see how my nails welcomed 2013!

What You'll Need:
  • Basecoat and Topcoat 
  • Dark polish for the base color (I'm using OPI Ink)
  • Silver Polish
  • Silver Glitter Polish
Step One:
Apply a coat of basecoat, followed by two coats of your base color. Allow the base color to dry.

Step Two:
Paint a thin silver line at the tip of each nail. This will make the glitter at the tip look more concentrated.

Step Three:
Paint a thicker line of glitter at the tip of the nail. This should cover the silver line, and you can add more glitter if you want. Then, drag  some of the glitter about halfway down the nail. Use more pressure near the tip so the glitter looks like it's dripping down the nail. Finish off with topcoat for a pretty shine.

There you have it, chic glitter fade nails to bring in the new year! I love this mani soo much, and I look forward to the posts I have planned for 2013! Thank you for reading!
