Forget Your Basic French With Glitter Tips

I’ve been adding glitter to the tips of my nails for an extra dose of sparkle for some time now. However, I recently discovered a new way to upgrade the look.

The Inspiration: Cosmo’s Glitter Nail Tutorial

Cosmo’s how-to featured nude nails with piles of glitter. While I felt the tutorial was a bit specific to using certain types of glitter, my main takeaway was how to layer different glitter polishes.

My Way:

Instead of leaving my nails nude, I chose an off-white polish that I’d normally reserve for when I’m a bit tanner. However, adding glitter to the white gave it a more springtime feel.

Get the look:

1. After applying your base coat (always apply base coat!), paint a white coat of polish on your nail. I used Nicole by OPI’s sweet surrender. Let it dry.

2. Use a gold polish to paint a stroke across the tip of your nail. It should be about the width of the brush itself. Don’t worry about it being straight, the glitter (step 3!) will cover up a messy line. I used Sephora by OPI’s worth my weight.

3. For this step, you’ll need a clear based polish with loose glitter inside, like Essie’s jazzy jubilant. You need to get as much of the glitter on your brush as possible and paint it over the gold line you made.

4. Paint a topcoat on and prepare for compliments!

Instead of a flower crown, I opted for this flower clip from Asos and braided it into my hair. Although I found the product a bit hard to use at first, it instantly transformed my outfit to boho glam. I’m looking forward to wearing it when the weather warms up this spring!

Delicate Details with Stackable Rings

If you remember my statement necklace obsession, this may come as a shock to you, but lately I’ve been all about more delicate pieces like stackable rings. To get the look, opt for gold metals in thin shapes and widths. Here, I layered midi rings on one hand and balanced it with a bold statement ring on my other hand. One loud piece makes the look more interesting but still subtle. AccessoriesGameNecklace: Asos

Infinity Ring: Jeweliq

Cage Ring: Forever 21

Nail Polish: Maybelline (top) & Deborah Lippmann (harlem shake)
