How To: Glitter Nail Top Coat

Don’t you love it when the pros take it upon themselves to make nail art a cinch? Of course you do! That’s why we can’t get enough of the special effects top coats that are stocking the shelves (and our beauty cabinets); these aren’t your traditional top coats. One swipe to cover the nail will do it, but these top coats can do so much more. 

  • Ombre from the Base: Load the brush with ample flecks of glitter and dab it on the base of the nail. Allow that layer to dry before sweeping a second coat up the nail.
  • Ombre from the Top: Start with a swipe of China Glaze polish in Fairy Dust across the tip of the nail. Allow that to dry, and then gradually build the glitter down the length of the nail.

  • Sheer: One coat of China Glaze in Glitter Up over any nail color will give you a wash of sparkle that will still allow the base color to shine through.
  • Opaque: For a solid sheet of sparkle, apply three coats of China Glaze Champagne Kisses, allowing each one to dry in between layers.
