Seasonal Sparkles

I'm not sure when glitter became synonymous with NYE but I'm not about to go changing the rules. With the big night just around the corner I dug out my favourite glitters and got to work. When I think of party nails I usually end up with some combination of black and glitter, the dark background just seems to make the glitter sparkle even more. 

For this mani I chose Barry M's Amethyst Glitter over their Black polish. I love this glitter polish as it has a gorgeous combo of silver, blue, pink and purple. I added glitter tips to the black base by dabbing glitter along the end of the nail, and dragging it down with a dry brush. I chose to include an accent nail of full glitter just to mix it up a little.

You can either finish this mani with a gloss top coat, or for something a little different you could use a matte top coat like I have here. I used Essie's Matte About You which has a lovely formula and if you're careful the matte effect will last at least a couple of days!

Perfect party nails to go with any outfit!!



  1. Matte and glitter? So creative <3

    1. The matte makes the glitter really pop, doesn't it?E&J.xx
