  • The simplest way to do a glitter French manicure

If you like glittery nail designs, then you probably own a glitter nail polish. A simple way to do the glitter french is to use a transparent glitter nail polish after you previously did the French design. However this will create a subtle glittery effect. You can also used a colored glitter nail polish. If you want a more extravagant glitter French, you can use actual glitter. In order to do this, you needn’t waste time with the white tips as the glitter will cover them up anyhow. What you need to do instead is use the nail guides in order to mark the white tips as usual. Once you do that, you use a transparent nail polish in order to paint the tip of the nails. Immediately after varnishing one nail tip, you dip the nail in glitter. Since you are using the nail guides, the glitter will only stick on the tip of the nail. Once you do this, use a small brush in order to wipe off the excess glitter. After you glitter the tips of all your nails, allow enough time for the nails to dry. Once you do that, apply 2-3 layers of finishing coat. You need to apply more than just one layer due to the fact that the glitter will not have a uniform finish and you need to use the finishing coat in order to even the surface of the nails.

  • Other types of glitter French manicure

If you are a fan of ombre nail designs, you can try out a glittery ombre effect. In order to do this, you must use a sponge or a brush in order to tampon the nail with glitter after you previously painted the nail with transparent nail polish. Another variation of the Glitter French manicure is to make a border line which confines the glittery tips from the rest of the nails. This is a more complicated manicure as it requires a certain amount of precision. You have to paint the line by hand, using a very thing nail polish brush. Last but not least, you can try a reversed glitter french and paint the semi-round shape at the top of the nails instead of painting it on the tips.
