Flaunt D.I.Y: Silver Shimmer & White Nails

Recently I painted my nails and have been getting lots of compliments. Had I known I was going to get so much great feedback I would have done a video showing each step. Instead here are important steps listed, but once I repaint my nails I'll make a tutorial on this look. Also would this be considered wearing white after Labor Day lol??

Essie in "Snow White"
Klean Color in "Chunky Silver"
Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat

Step #1: Paint one coat of white. Make sure it's an even coat as white easily makes streaks. Dry completely.

Step #2: Carefully grab the silver foils at the tip of your brush to paint at the tips of your nails. If you don't have enough glitter you will have too many coats of polish which will cause them to be clumpy and hard to dry. Once semi-dry, gently pat down foil glitter to avoid flaking. Then dry completely.

Step #3: Take the silver foil but a bit less this time around. Paint over entire nail bed. Your nails should look like the silver is fading from the tips. Keep in mind it's quite difficult to get the flow of things so be patient and take your time. Dry completely.

Step #4: Paint over all nails with Seche Vite. This will completely seal your polish from chipping and keep your mani lasting!

Hopefully that was helpful! I'd love to see pics from you Flaunt Followers on this look. You can also use any type of glitter or foil polish and any color base. Send your pics to!

stay Fierce, be Fearless, & Flaunt got it!
