I feel like a magpie when I’m at the store and drawn to all of the glitter nail polishes…So shiny!!! I know many of you can relate.
And there are so many Indie Polish Makers. They have created an brand new market with glitter nail polishes. In fact, they have created a huge following that has forced the big polish companies to take notice and copy the Indie Makers.
Although I have over 500 polishes in my collection, I don’t own an Indie. Why? Money. As a professional mother of four children, my polish budget has been limited.
But I love all the amazing color combinations that are in Indie glitter nail polishes. I created this look using 3 different glitter nail polishes. Warning—it’s hard to stop staring at your nails. Have fun! ~Ana

STEP 2: 2 coats of your favorite tan or beige polish
STEP 3: With a fine turquoise glitter nail polish, use the polish brush to paint 3/4 of the way up your nail, starting at your cuticle line.
- It helps to wipe about 1/2 of the polish off of the brush, on the inside neck of the polish bottle, so you’re painting with thinner layers.
STEP 4: With a medium holographic pink glitter nail polish, paint 1/2 of your nail starting at the cuticle line.
STEP 5: Continuing with the pink glitter, repeat step 4 but only paint 1/4 of your nail (staying close to the cuticle line and intensifying the pink color)
STEP 6: Add a final layer using the small hex turquoise and holographic glitter nail polish. Paint about 1/2 of your nails staying near the cuticle line.
- You may need to place the hex glitters where you want by patting the glitter nail polish brush rather than painting with it.
STEP 7: Seal completed design with your favorite quick dry topcoat.
TIP: Remember to cap your edges and the underside of your nails with topcoat. This seals out water and protects your design.
