How to wear glitter nail polish


If you're like me and love all things sparkly, then chances are you have tried your hand at glitter nail polish (pun fully intended)

Personally, i quickly discovered that although i love the glint and sparkle that results from subjecting a whole hand to glitter nail polish that it just isn't for me. Too much attention is drawn to the hands, not to mention glittery nails arent as versitile when it comes to matching your polish to your wardrobe.

Soo being that i still love a bit of sparkle i had to find a solution.
I managed to tone down the glitter and discovered a few different ways to wear glittery nail polish. I have even worn them to professional meetings at uni!



1) The Accent Nail
      A personal favourite,  sometimes i even sprinkle on real glitter!












2) Gradient Glitter Nails
    For an extra WOW factor. Silver and pink is always a winning combination in my eyes.


3) French Glitter Tips
   For an added bit of fun in your next french manicure.

Let me know below your fave ways of wearing glitter polish or if you are game enough to wear it all over!

  1. I always do the glitter nail as an accent but the glitter on the bottom of all the nails is so pretty! I might try it out! Great post(:

    1. It is gorgeous to experiment with the colours! if you add a dab of glitter over painted nails you can actually blot it out as far as like it using a q-tip. But you have to work fast!!

  15. I always love doing the accent nail, it's such a fun way to glam up your nails without going overboard. But what I really want to do are the glitter gradient nails, they look so gorgeous! Thank you for this post <3

  16. Even though glitter nail polish is a pain to remove, I still love to wear it! Personally, I'd say that I love the accent nail design too! It's such a pretty look that is very easy to apply. The gradient would be close second! Thanks for sharing this post babe! x
