What Will I Need to Create this Red Glitter Nail Polish Design?

  • Nail file
  • Transparent base coat
  • Red nail polish
  • Silver glitter polish
  • Top coat

Step 1 – Prep your base

Buff and file your nails until each fingertip is shaped to perfection. We recommend opting for an oval, almond or stiletto nail shape for this look as the pointy tips add to the heart design. Next, coat each nail with a transparent base coat to allow the natural pink of the nail to shine through.

Step 2 – Draw the heart

Take a red nail polish and carefully create the top of a heart on the tip of the nail. Start with the outline of the shape first, before filing in the centre of the shape.

Top Tip: If you have a shaky hand, then rope one of your besties in to help you out on this step!

Step 3 – Cover in glitter

Once the red has dried, go over the design with a silver glitter nail polish. Layer this up until you have an even spread of sparkle on each nail.

Step 4 – Top coat to finish

Seal your glamorous look with a transparent top coat – this will prevent chipping and add a glossy finish.
