This pretty design, with its pink base, would be perfect for your romantic date with your boyfriend. Don’t have a significant other yet? The perfect manicure, coupled by the perfect outfit, will definitely give you nudge into the right direction! Just follow the steps below!
What you will need:
- OPI Nail Polish, Coney Island Cotton Candy
- ZOYA Nail Polish, Cosmo Magical Pixiedust
- China Glaze Nail Polish, Platinum Silver
- CND Stickey Base Coat
- Seche Vite Top Coat
Step 1: Protect Your Nails
Always prep your nails properly before getting into any kind of nail art. The same goes for this design. Apply your base coat properly and let it dry. This will help protect your natural nails from all the chemicals that come with constantly applying nail polish on them. This might seem a bit tedious but, I swear, you’ll thank me for it when you get strong and healthy nails even with constant nail art changes.
Step 2: Pink Is The New Red
Instead of the usual rich red, paint your nails with a pink nail polish for your base color. It’s still within the official shade of the holiday but it’s different enough to set your nails apart. Try to apply the pink base evenly. Be careful of applying too much polish.
Step 3: Shining, Shimmering, Splendid
After making sure that your base color is completely dry, start painting on the glittered nail polish. Start near the cuticle area, slowly drag the nail polish brush down with a light stroke. Silver glitter is used in this design since it contrasts perfectly with the nude pink shade.
Step 4: Silver Streaking
Using a striper, apply long lines of a silver polish down to the middle of your nail. This will give the manicure its falling glitter effect. Doesn’t it look pretty?
Step 5: Seal In The Design
Once you’re satisfied with the design, apply a fast-drying topcoat to seal in the design. This will help keep your falling glitter nail art last longer. Clean up any excess polish on the edges of your nails with a cosmetic brush or Q-tip dipped in nail polish remover.
