Hey Internet Friends,
Ive got a week off work and that means one very exciting thing! It means I can do my nails however I want, no neutral colours and trimmed short, its time to be long, glittery and fabulous!
This look is really easy to create if Im being honest once you do the initial false nail prep its simply a few licks of paint.
Here is everything I used to create the ultimate red glittery nail.
In order to prep the false nails I simply take a generic false nail brand and apply it using quick dry nail glue working from the base of the false nail and applying it to my natural nail bed.
When painting false nails your going to want to rough up the surface of the nail using a file, this just allows the polish to sit better and dry faster.
I then get started on the paint, I used three different nail paints for this look.
A Seventeen clear varnish for a base and top coat, a dark purple colour by Barry M and the ultimate glittery polish also by Seventeen.
I started with the clear base coat and then the dark purple. I wanted an intense colour underneath the red glitter so I applied two coats of the dark purple. This colour is a beautiful and rich vampy colour and would work wonderfully on its own.
After this had fully dried I then went over it with this amazing Seventeen Red Glittery polish. The results for this are fantastic! Such a bold effect and exactly what I wanted! I then protected the red glitter with another coat of the clear topcoat. I like to apply two coats of clear top coat to really make it shine beautifully.
Exactly what you need to make you feel a little more special and glamarous on your week off!
Hope you guys enjoyed this little nail post.
