For my latest lots-of-trends-at-once
manicure, I decided to combine sophisticated navy with gold glitter for an ombré effect. Too much? True, this manicure may have a lot going on, but I think the results are actually really pretty and totally wearable. Besides, we can all use a little more glitter in our lives, right?
To get this look, I started with a base coat and then applied navy polish (I used OPI Road House Blues). I used two coats, and after letting them dry completely, I began to layer gold glitter polish (I used the gold glitter shade from the UO Nail Polish - Sparkle Collection from Urban Outfitters), starting with a thin layer over the whole nail, then a second coat of glitter starting halfway down the nail, and finally a third coat on just the top portion of the nail. It's really important to let each coat dry completely before moving on to the next one. Otherwise, you'll end up with a gloppy, bubbly mess, as this manicure takes a lot of polish. Finish with a top coat and you're done! -S
