Never one to be left out of a craze, I thought I'd try my hand at a DIY glittery manicure just in time for Christmas!
I read a million different methods, but most of them made it sound MUCH more complicated than it really is. A few bloggers poured half the clear polish out of the bottle & tipped the glitter in, but that sounded like a bit of a drastic measure to me. (Although, it may be more secure & I probably shouldn't speak too soon!)
A couple of Instagram photos. That app is so addictive.
I simply painted on the clear polish, poured on a huge mountain of glitter, tapped off the excess, et voilà, glittery nails!
You can paint clear nail polish over the top to ensure it stays put & improve the texture. I didn't because mine was just a trial - I'll do a proper version tomorrow so it's fresh for Christmas day.
The finished look.
Ok now back to the mad rush of cleaning & cooking for Christmas!
