DIY Glitter Nails


If you want to have incredibly glittery nails but don't want to break the bank you can easily get hold of some loose glitter and your favourite nail polish and create your own glittery nails.  I had always thought about doing this but had never bothered to buy any loose glitter. My Auntie very kindly donated some glitter that she was using for card making to me.  It's a very fine translucent/pink glitter which comes in a little tub. I painted some of my nails white and some of them pink to see how the glitter would look on the different colours. While the polish was wet I dipped each of my nails into the glitter in the tub and tapped off the excess. I love how it looks and am looking forward to trying it over different colours. I tried putting top coat over the glitter and it actually turned out quite well. It was still really sparkly.

I would definitely recommend giving this a go!

Let me know what you think of these sparkly nails! Have you tried doing this with craft glitter?
