Ever since I saw Emily’s pretty sparkly mani on Cupcakes and Cashmere, I’ve been drawn to glittery nails like a magpie to a shiny sequined handbag (that one’s for you, Lisa). I’ve seen lots of bloggers’ takes on how to do them yourself, and the easiest I found was using glitter polish and a small sponge — like an eyeshadow sponge or makeup triangle — to apply the glitter in an ombre pattern; sparsely on the nail and more concentrated toward the tip. I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Beige Blast as a base with an inexpensive glitter polish from the drugstore. I’d recommend a good top coat when everything dries, otherwise the glitter will snag on everything {speaks from experience}.

    Did this tonight with a base of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Petal Pusher and the glitter is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Rockstar Pink! Awesome! :D

    How pretty! I’m going to have to try this! …Though I’m sure my right hand will end up looking ridiculously bad.

    I’ll have to try the sponge method. I tried another method I saw on line and it ended up globbing near the tips. It was not a pretty site.

      Oops that should be sight.
