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.
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.
