Pink Sparkle Nail Art
This post may contain affiliate links.
Welcome to another nail art post! I created this look using Barry M ‘Magenta Glitter’ Nail Paint and MUA Nail Polish in ‘Natural Days’. I just love Natural Days, it’s such a pretty, pale baby pink, if you want to see what it looks like on its own, have a look at my review here. Barry M’s Magenta Glitter is a very intense fuchsia pink colour, that contains mainly fine flecks of glitter but does have a few larger blobs of glitter in too.
First I painted 2 thick coats of the Natural Days pale baby pink polish over my nails and left to dry. Then I painted a thin coat of Magenta Glitter at the base of my nail to about halfway up each nail. After this coat had dried I painted another coat of the glitter nail paint, this time from the base to only about one third of the way up each nail, this way it gives a gentle graded effect to the glitter. I finished with a clear top coat which stops the glitter feeling rough, and gives a lovely sheen.
This sparkly nail art look is really pretty, and very easy to do, plus the polishes that I have used are really affordable. You could even substitute the Magenta Glitter polish for a silver glitter polish for a great effect, or swap the baby pink Natural Days for a pale mint green instead.
UPDATE 04/03/2016 – this Barry M nail paint is no longer available, so why not check out the huge range of special effects nail paints at Barry M to find another favourite?
Natural Days Nail Polish is priced at just £1 (yes, that’s £1!) and is available from MUA and Superdrug stores.
