I mentioned a few weeks ago how this glittery French manicure caught my eye. Well, I figured out how to replicate it at home.
Start with an assortment of glittery, gold, and dark polishes. I used OPI’s Lincoln Park After Dark, The Cove Coppery by Essie, Only Gold for Me from Sephora by OPI, and Deborah Lippman’s Ruby Red Slippers.
Apply choice of dark polish, using nail guides to keep the tips polish-free. Be sure to remove the guides while the polish is still tacky, not when it’s completely dry. Otherwise the entire coat can come off in a sheet. And don’t worry about any mistakes. You’re about to cover them with several more layers of polish.
Once both colors have dried, go back and apply the red glitter over your darker color, and the gold glitter over the tips, bleeding down over the red glitter to blend. Add a clear top coat to seal, clean up any mistakes, and voila! You’re done!
