Glitter polishes in any colors and shape of sparkles can add extra glamour to plain base colors or fancy nail art design. The tips below will use silver glitter for creating beautiful and unique french pedicure design.
This guide is specifically for french pedicure. But the process is similar to french manicure.
What you need:
Any dark color nail polish for background, in this case is shimmery burgundy
Any dark red color for stripes, or your choice of color
Step 1 - Apply the base coat
A clear base coat is a must when using dark nail polish. It will prevent discoloration and will keep nails healthy.
Step 2 - Apply the dark polish as base color
Follow with a coat of the burgundy color. Paint dark red stripes over burgundy background. Test polishes on paper to make sure they are the shade you expect and work well together.
Step 3 - Apply glitter tip
Add a glamorous touch to the design by painting a French Pedicure tip in silver glitter. It's the easiest French tip to paint as glitter hardly shows any imperfections.
The bigger shape of the glitter, the more visible it look. We like big shape for this one.
Use Nail Art to apply the tip since the thin brush will make it easier to apply the tip.
Always finish your manicure or pedicure with top coat for extra shine and protection.
