Glitter French Nails
5... 4... 3... 2... 1...! Cheers to New Year’s nails that sparkle! Prepare to dazzle as you step into the new year with these glamorous Glitter French tips.
- Start by giving the cuticles some TLC and shaping the nails into a chic almond shape. If your client is aiming for that perfect length not quite there naturally, consider opting for nail enhancements like Gel-X or Gel Builder.
- Once the nails boast that flawless almond shape, apply two coats of sheer blush pink polish as a base.
- Now, here’s where the magic happens! Dazzle the tips of the nails with silver glitter polish. Precision is key in achieving the perfect French manicure look, so take your time with this step.
- After creating those mesmerizing glitter tips, use a fine brush and bright white polish to delicately curve a line that separates the glitter from the pink base, adding depth to the nails.
- Finish off with a clear topcoat for a glossy, flawless finish and treat the cuticles to some nourishing cuticle oil.
Voilà! Get set to shine brighter than the New Year's ball drop!
Gold Glitter Nails
Prepare to celebrate in style with a touch of bubbly and this stunning glittery masterpiece.
- Nail preparation sets the stage for a flawless manicure. Start by tending to your client's cuticles and shaping the nails into the classic "squoval" style.
- Once the prep work is done, let the sparkle take center stage. Use a sheer rose gold shimmer polish and apply two even coats to the base of the nails, allowing each coat to dry thoroughly.
- Complete this chic look with a clear top coat and hydrating cuticle oil for a long-lasting, chip-free manicure.
Toast to fabulous nails that shimmer beautifully into the new year!
Multi-Colored Confetti Nails
Get set to ring in the festivities with a look that dazzles as brilliantly as the New Year's fireworks!
- Nail prep is a must for a flawless mani, so start by caring for your client's cuticles and shaping the nails into the universally flattering almond style.
- Once the prep is done, apply a clear base coat across the nail bed. If your client prefers more coverage, opt for a sheer baby pink or a nude polish that compliments their skin tone.
- Once the base dries, let the fun begin! Choose vibrant polishes (include some glitter for that extra sparkle) and, using a dotting tool, create a confetti effect at the tips of the nails. Embrace the vibrant colors and feel free to go all out—more colors mean more fun in this design!
- Finish off this vibrant look with top coat and a dab of cuticle oil for a dazzling, shiny finish that captures the essence of celebration.
