How to Create a Glitter Manicure

A Shimmery Yet Sleek Rock Star Manicure

Rockstar mani
One of our Los Angeles readers, sissysugar, went to Nail Service, a nail salon in Little Tokyo, to get this glam manicure. The sparkle you see? That's actual loose glitter, which is transferred to the nail during the 90-minute $60 treatment.

For a weekend project, you can attempt this manicure at home. Make your own glitter nail polish by combining your favorite fine-sized-flake craft glitter with clear nail polish. Apply several coats, then finish with a top coat. Or, you can achieve this shimmering look by trying out this fade-to-gold manicure. Use a bright, opaque color as a base, then add a few sheer coats of gold nail polish on the bottom half of the nail. Finish it off with glitter nail polish like Essie's Luxeffects across the whole nail. Rock on.
