NOTD – Gorgeous Pink Glitter Nail Art With Steps


Wanted to do something to my nails but just wasn’t getting time to try out something that would take a lot of time. And in such conditions one nail art product that can really change the look of your nails is glitter. Recently I got this little pot of glitter from kkcenterhk.com and since I was short on time I thought I’d make use of it. Before I say anything more lets take a look at my finished nail art!

I have used a very fine glitter from N.Nails in pink color.

Glitter nail art is very very easy to do. Before you begin create a working surface to catch all the glitter fallout which you can pour back into its original packaging to prevent wastage. Using a large piece of paper is good.


Now do this one nail at a time – first cover your entire nail with either a clear polish or a nail paint which is close to the color of your glitter. I chose to apply Sally Hansen Ivory Fairy (reviewed HERE)

Then take some glitter on the lid of the glitter container and pour it over your wet nail (do this nail art one nail at a time so that nail paint is fresh and wet when you pour glitter on it), pour enough glitter to cover the entire nail and don’t worry about extra glitter all over your finger (another option is to dip this nail into the glitter container itself).

Let the glitter set on the nail while you repeat the steps for the other nails. Once the glitter seems to be set (you can gently shake your hands and see if there is any more fallout of glitter – if not its all set) take a fluffy makeup brush (any soft fluffy brush would do), and dust it gently over the nails – this will remove all the extra glitter from your fingers. Now you can collect the glitter from paper that you kept beneath your hand and pour it back (you can use the same fluffy brush to dust off the glitter from the paper if any of it seems stuck)

Now to finish off your gorgeous nails use any good top coat and cover each nail. I used the Orly top & bottom for this.

It took me about 5 minutes to do this entire thing (most of the time was taken by the glitter to set properly)
I think this is a great way to decorate your nails for any festive occasion. Do you think you would try this out soon? I am lovely my nails today Smile
