How To Sparkle This Autumn With Glitter Nails

It’s that time of year again, the nights are slowly drawing in, the leaves are beginning to fall off the trees, and you can even see a few odd Christmas things creep into the shops (eek!). However, before all that we are now in the autumn season, so put your coat on, grab your boots and look fabulous by having nails that sparkle with glitter.

Glitter Nails Courses Essex

Why Glitter?

We all love painting our nails, and trying out new nail art ideas is always great fun. Our nail courses in Essex are perfect for showing you how to get fab looking nails. However, having that sparkle really makes your nails stand out with an outfit and can add something special. Glitter nail polish can come in so many different colours, to match whatever you’re wearing, and to give you a brighter look.

Celebrities such as Kelly Rowland and Paris Hilton are styling bright glitter nails. They both go for different looks; either matching to the colour of an outfit, or going for a stark contrast. Whatever you’re in the mood for, either of these ideas are great!

Tips and Ideas

People are starting to get really creative with glitter on their nails, thinking of brand new ways to sparkle. Here’s some of our tips for creating snazzy glitter nails this autumn:

  • Always take care of your nails and make sure they are in good condition. Mayo Clinic give a great run down to taking care of them, including keeping nails dry and clean, using moisturiser and strengthening nails with a protective layer. This will be great for making your nails look even better.
  • You can get so many nail polishes which are glitter filled these days. In order to make sure you get the best colour and look, its best to put a base colour on first. If you have red glitter, put a red colour on underneath to add extra colour; this way the colour will sparkle brighter.
  • If you don’t have any glitter nail polish, fear not, you can actually just use some regular glitter. This trend is really setting off and it simple to do. Put a clear base coat on your nails and then simply dip your finger in the glitter. Be sure to rub off the excess around your nail, then put a top coat on to keep it lasting longer.
  • If you just want to add a bit of glitter then you can easily just do the top part of your nail. For this you’ll need some tape or tip guides. Simply put the tape near the top of your nail, leaving the top part of the nail exposed, then add the glitter. Make sure you’ve already done a base coat which is thoroughly dry so the tape doesn’t stick to it and remove it.
