Sparkly Party Nails!

Hello, Fireflies!

Are you getting ready for the NYE parties?  I saw this nail art in a pamphlet I received from Sephora, and I thought it would be perfect for the blingy holiday season.

I started with a stripe of  Everybeauty Blasted, a collection of silver glitters in a clear base.  This was easier to do by painting the glitter on a makeup sponge and dabbing it where I wanted.  Otherwise, you'll have too much base to get a thick layer of  glitter.

Then I painted Color Club Williamsburg, a metallic blue with shimmer, on the sides.

In retrospect, I should have put a strip of tape down the center of my nails, painted the sides, let it dry, and THEN added the glitter.

I bet it would have been easier, and I'd have straighter lines.  With the sponge technique, it's easier to get the glitter exactly where you want it, too.

I think this is so unique!  If you have longer nails, and you don't like the VNL showing through, I'd think using a sheer nude under everything would help with that. 

What kinds of party nails have you been wearing this holiday season?  I'd love for you to share them on my wall!


Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
