DIY Glittery Nails

Hey girlies!
For the past couple of days I have been getting a lot of compliments on my nails that I did for my graduation. They are super easy to do and looks so girly!
If you also want to also get these nails then keep reading!

The first thing that you will need to achieve this look is  some fine glitter. I picked up some superfine glitter at my local dollar store for only $1 CDN.

You will also need some sheer and white polish to make the nails look more put together and make the glitter show up the best.
After applying a base coat, I took Maybelline New York in Snow Bunny, which is a sheer polish, and applied this to all my nails. 
Then I took a white polish, and using my finger, I just applied this to the top 3rd of my nails.
Now to get the glitter to stick to your nails, I took my top coat and applied this to the upper half/third of my nails. I waited a few seconds for the top coat to become sticky. Then I just picked up the glitter with a clean finger and padded this onto the clear polish. I also brought a lighter layer of glitter just under the first layer of glitter to fade it out.
Once you have applied all the glitter to your nails wait until they completely dry before applying your top coat. I found that I had to apply many layers of my top coat to get the glitter to not chip off and to make my nails feel smooth without the bumpy feeling of the glitter.
And thats all I did to get these super cute and girly nails!

I hope you enjoyed reading this DIY Glitter Nails, and I hope you also try this out because it is a super cute and easy look!
