Glitter manicure refresher

Over a week ago, I tried out a new mint polish on my fingernails. I still love the color, but it’s not looking quite so… fresh anymore.

Then I came across this gorgeous manicure, which inspired me with how to refresh my mint nails.

Glitter and nails

I started out by applying a dollop of metallic silver nail polish to the tops of my mint-colored nails. I let the polish dry for a few seconds at the top, then brushed the rest of the polish lightly down the nail. I repeated this a couple more times.

I think it would look better with polish that has bigger sparkles, like in the inspiration pic, but overall, I like the effect and its sophisticated take on glitter.

It’s a lovely, simple idea for a fresh manicure, plus an easy way to extend one. :)

    I’ve done this manicure, it works really well with loose glitter! You just put clear polish down, and then paint/sponge on the loose glitter. Real easy!
