Step 1 – File & Buff

Start by prepping your nails. File your nails down so they are all the same length and shaped to your preference, removing any irregularities.

Once you are happy with the shape, swipe the buffer in an upward motion across your nails. This will create a shiny and even base for easy nail varnish application.

Step 2 – Base Coat

Apply a clear base coat to your nails. It’s important to apply a base coat for a few reasons: Firstly, it prevents chemicals from the nail varnish coming into direct contact with your nail bed.  Secondly it is a great way of creating an even surface for those that suffer from bumpy, uneven nail beds.

If you have weak nails, look out for base coats enriched in vitamins for extra nourishment.

Step 3 – Apply the White

Once the base coat has dried, apply the white nail varnish. To avoid scarce areas, apply two coats of the polish. It should look shiny and even. Any additional coats face the threat of the polish becoming gloopy and easily smudged.

Step 4 – Glitter it Up

Now it’s time to add some sparkle.

With the silver glitter nail varnish, apply to the top tips of your nails, creating an ombre effect between the glitter and the white varnishes.

As the varnish is white, you can experiment with different colours of glitter as they will all show up. We recommend a lighter colour.

Step 5 – Glitter tips

Next, using a darker glitter nail varnish, paint the tips of your nails. This adds another colour to the ombre spectrum, making your nails more interesting – and glittery!

Step 6 – Top Coat

Apply a clear top coat to your nails to conceal all the varnishes. It will prevent your nails from chipping prematurely and hold everything in place.

You can now dazzle everyone with your sparkly nails – perfect for the festive season.
