DIY Glitter nails

What you will need...
piece of paper, spoon, glitter(which you can purchase at any craft store, and clear nail polish.
so i got this idea from a magazine but i can't remember which one. They said it was perfect for the holidays. So i went to the craft store and picked up a glitter which was only $1 and i picked up 3 colors gold, purple, and a royal blue. the clear nail polish i'm using is by Sally Hansen in diamond shine it's a base & top coat. so you just paint one nail at a time in clear polish then put some glitter on your paper and pick it up with a spoon and sprinkle it over that nail while it's wet of course, then use the back of the spoon to set the glitter in place the finish off with two more coats of clear polish. And there you have it.

The only thing is the glitter i bought was a bit too chunky for me so i think i'll go back to the craft store and pick of this set of 12 pretty craft glitters from Martha Stewart which are much finer. These runs around $20-$25.


  1. thanks it was, until i forgot to put the cap back on the glitter tube and it spilled all over my floor lol

  2. I think I am going to try that. Did the glitter get all over your clothes and every thing else?
