Adding a Glitter Accent to Your Mani

One glitter mani trend that is just as gorgeous to look at as it is easy to create is the accent nail design. You can create any consistent nail art pattern and alter one nail by covering it with glitter. One nail can completely change your look!

What You'll Need:

  • Base polish
  • Nail polish
  • Glitter
  • Bonding Formula
  • Sealing Formula

This one is pretty simple:
  • Start by polishing your nails an even coat with the color of your choice (blue is used in this example).
  • Paint a second coat, and make sure to get the edges of your nails to prevent chipping!
  • Create the chevron look by placing nail tape and painting with your second color.
  • Create your glitter accent nail! We love the use of silver hexagon glitter on this. You can do this one of two ways:
Here's a fun one:
  • Once again, polish those nails!
  • Give your nails a second coat and paint the edges.
  • To create the colorful polka dots, use a dotting tool. Don't have a dotting tool? You can actually use a Q-tip, but your polka dots with be a larger size.
  • Create your glitter accent nail by following the same guidelines as shown above.

The perfect look for an ombre lover:
  • Create an ombre effect by putting the two colors you want on a makeup sponge and blending with a brush.
  • Take the blend on the sponge and apply it to your nails
  • To create the glitter accent design, tape off the sections you don't want the glitter on with nail tape.
  • Apply glitter. We recommend applying glitter directly to the nail with this one!
