1. Geometric style

The first one up is extremely easy.

1) Start off by applying your base colour, this can be matte or glossy.

2) Now cut up some low adhesive tape or peel off paper in the shape of your choice. Check if your base has dried and place the tape as desired.

3) Now paint the uncovered part of your nail with a glitter paint and let it dry well before you remove the tape.

4) Even it out with a top coat and you have your geometric manicure.




2. Starry night

This is a great look, especially for a night out. All you need is a dark base in blue or black, some loose star glitter, a top coat, and a glitter paint is optional.

1) Apply your base coat and wait for it to dry. If you want to apply the glitter paint, do it now but apply a very light coat as we don’t want to overdo it.

2) Using a tweezer, place the glitter stars on your nails in random order. You can use as many or as few as you like, there is no hard and fast rule, but make sure you apply it while the paint is still a little wet so it sticks.

3) Finish it off with a top coat.

What you need is a base colour, a glitter paint, another color paint, a top coat, a nail art brush. If you don’t have them, any thin brush will do.
