Glittery Sapphire Winter Manicure

It's that time of year; festive music, brisk air, and amazing winter style! Make sure your nails are on point this season with this adorable sapphire blue & silver glittery mani. Keep reading below to see the breakdown:

First, add a coat of your favourite base coat. Afterwards, add two coats of any deep sapphire colour.

Next, take a chunky glitter polish and begin to paint stripes on the tip of you nail in varying heights. Be sure to keep the majority of the polish below the halfway mark. This will create a zig-zag effect on the bottom half of the nail, making it look like a gradient
In feathering strokes, make your zig-zag into more of a gradient by adding small bits of glitter to the very top like the above photo (right). Make sure your brush has very little product on it when doing this. Dotting also works great. Now you're done!

Luck & Love,
