I loved how my glittery gradient mani turned out so much that I decided to do a variation on it, using the night sky as my inspiration!
Here's how I did it:
I grabbed deep navy, silver glitter, and gold glitter polish along with my favorite top coat. I also grabbed an orange stick and some nail art rhinestones.
Paint a base coat with the navy polish, reminiscent of the night sky!
3. Sparkly Stars
Swipe the smaller sized glitter polish on the top third of each nail.
4. More Sparkly Stars
Cover the top two-thirds of each nail with the larger sized glitter. Use the tip of the brush to place glitter along the very tip of each nail to deepen the gradient effect.
Choose a two or three nails to accent with rhinestones.Wipe a thin layer of your top coat on the first nail in the spot you want to place the gem. Use the moistened point of your orange stick to pick up the gem and place it on the wet polish. Repeat with nail you wish to accent.
6. Make it Last
To secure the rhinestones and make the manicure last as long as possible, finish up with a coat of a good top coat. I recommend Seche Vite.
7. Show it Off
Go out and parade that out-of-this-universe mani around! Or snap a photo and send it my way! ;)
