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? MUA are also no longer producing nail polish, but I’ve found another baby pink polish that is almost the same, it’s from Essie and it’s called Blush Worthy, priced at £9.99 from Boots.
