A gold, glittery and glamourous manicure!
Do you adore Dior? I know I do.
I came up with a manicure that captured the richness and elegance of Charlize's dress, but that's still easy for any budding nail artist to apply.
I used varying shades of golds and browns, and finished with a buildup of glitter at the top of the nail to mimic the bejeweled look of the dress.
Gone are the neon manicures of summer; fall brings in the the refinement of metallic tones and opulence of texture and sparkle. I don't mind.
This manicure features a deep gold base with added glitter tip- three types of glitter to be exact.
You can't go wrong here.
Step 1: Gather materials. Needed are clear nail polish, a taupe (I used Sinful Colors Nirvana), a shimmery beige (I used Sally Hansen #4453), a shimmery gold (I used LA Colors Seashell), a gold glitter (I used Sinful Colors All About You), fine gold loose glitter and chunky gold glitter.
You will also need a paint brush, and nail polish remover for cleanup.
Step 4: Paint a coat of the clear nail polish. Working quickly, take your dry paint brush and dip in the fine loose glitter. Tap the end towards the top half of the nail so some glitter falls onto the nail.
Now, take a pinch of chunky glitter and sprinkle on tip of nail; it's ok if it falls a little lower like seen in the picture. We are aiming for a glitter dusted tip look.
Repeat with each nail. Make sure to press down the glitter on the nail so it sticks.
When dry, apply top coat over everything.
