It was a line in a lottery television commercial and it stuck with me all these years. It’s an appropriate title for my newest nail creation: a modern nude shade with iridescent dazzle. The name of this manicure is FRIENDS CALL ME SPARKLE. Here’s how to make it your look.
This color is making me crazy. It’s a blush nude creme. The brush has professional shorter bristles. The color layers smoothly without streaks.
Apply a second coat to all nails EXCEPT thumbs and ring fingers.
Pour out some sparkles for the homies. I found these unique glitter pots by WNP at $2 a pop. I used the large strand glitter pot.
Paint a nail, then grab a pinch to sprinkle sparkle evenly over fresh paint. Clean up the edges quickly with an orange stick.
Whip out your nail art pen/brush polish. This one is so old that the brand has rubbed off, but these are pretty commonplace in drugstores now. Look for a shimmery silver metallic.
Swipe across the tip of each non-sparkly nail.
Let nails dry and top off with a protective clear coat to seal the sparkles and your silvery tips.
Hold out your hand to introduce yourself to people as Sparkle.
