I Feel Pretty! Let's Do a Sparkly Glitter French Manicure!!!

Step 1: Brush a sheer pink or neutral shade polish over entire nail & let dry completely. I used Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Angel Wings SKU #4834-09
Step 2: Mask off nail tips.
Step 3: Brush a metallic silver on nail tips & quickly move on to step 4...I used Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear 'Celeb City' SKU #4860-13
Step 4: Using any craft glitter in silver, shake some onto nail tips while they are still wet & let dry completely.
Step 5: Remove masking tapes & finally brush on a clear coating over entire nail to seal in the glitter & give a smooth finish.

This is currently my favorite way to paint my nails. I've seen other tutorials out there, but made improvements so that the tips are super sparkly without being too thick & dries more quickly since there are fewer polish layers. I use regular glitter vs. the glitter polish which I tried, but found more difficult to get a really really sparkly effect. Anyhow, I hope you enjoyed the tutorial for giving yourself a glitter french manicure & try it out for yourself!

Stay sparkly!
