Glitter Mani:)

Hello Cupcakies!,

So today, I wanted to talk about a manicure idea!

I can't really remember what inspired this, but I had the idea to paint clear polish over my bare nails, then sprinkle cosmetic glitter all over them. You know I can't resist glitter ;) I tried this with pink glitter, and I am obsessed with the way my nails look. Here's a quick how-to:

1. Start with clean fingernails. Groom them according to your personal preference. I like to buff and shine my nails after I file them :)

2. Paint a clear base coat over each of your nails, and let this coat dry.

3. Paint another layer of base coat over your nails, and sprinkle glitter over them before they dry. I find that this step works best one hand at a time, and painting and sprikling 2 fingers at a time.

4. Paint a clear top coat over your nails to seal in the glitter, and you're done!

I didn't want my nails caked in glitter, so I sprinkled the glitter using a light hand. Almost like you would sprinkle fairy dust.

This manicure gives a really pretty touch to your natural nails, and is not too overdone. It is also low maintenence!

What touches do you addd to your mani?

Watch later today for my interview with Aires!!!!!!!:)

X's and O's!
