So with New Years around the corner, I decided to go sparkly! You know me, I love my shiny things. Instead of just using any regular ol' glitter polish I decided to use my Eye Kandy Cosmetics Glitter and turn that into nail polish. I did a little step by step Ombre look, I think you'll love it. Check it out.
|All the materials you need|
Beauty Secrets Hardener - I got this from Sally's and used this to mix with the Eye Kandy Glitter.
Eye Kandy Glitters - I used Toffee and a limited edition color Winter Wonderland.
Seche Vite - Top coat.
Makeup Wedges - Used to create the Ombre look, you can get at any drug store or Target or Walmart.
Scrap piece of plastic - I used this to mix the clear coat and glitter together. You can even use an old CD.
I mixed the Beauty Secrets Hardener with a little bit of the Eye Kandy Glitter in Toffee. Then I dipped the makeup wedge and started on the tip of my nails and gradually dabbed upwards. I did this to all of my nails and waited for them to dry a bit.

I mixed the Beauty Secrets Hardener with a little bit of the Eye Kandy Glitter in Winter Wonderland. Then I dipped a different makeup wedge and started where I left off with the Toffee. I started pretty close to the tip because I wanted that Ombre look and just kept gradually dabbing upwards.

I used the Seche Vite as my top coat. Watch closely when you're doing this final step because you will see how much more your nails will shine once you put the top coat on. You think that your nails were shiny before the top coat- oh boy they sure are shiny after a nice top coat.

Hope everyone has a fantastic and safe New Years! See you all next year!
