simple glitter fade nail art DIY:9.05.2012
in case you haven't noticed I love to paint my nails, it's a teeny (alright huge) obsession of mine. sometimes my nails can't cope with the constant removing and re painting regime I put them through and get into a rather flaky and damaged state!
when this happens I love to give them a bit of TLC. I cut, file, buff and moisturise the living daylights out of them and give them a coat of two of clear strengthening polish.
then I paint over them once again aha!
I love glitter nails (even if they are an absolute sod to remove!) I really like this manicure as the glitter tips actually give my worn down weak tips some extra protection and strength (whilst looking delightful)
It's a very simple manicure, I used one of my favourite models own polishes utopia which is a gorgeous pale pink with a hint of lilac. once this is dry I shake out some assorted glitters and mix them together, paint half of your nail with clear polish and then use a sponge to dab on the glitter.
I got my tubes of glitter from hobbycraft but you can use glitter nail polish if you like (I just enjoy mixing up up my own!)
hope you like it!
