Beauty Column - Dipped in Sparkles

I was so excited to use my favorite bottle of sparkles in this new (and easy!) nail DIY. I especially love this particular DIY because it's perfect to dress up your nails for an evening party or a fun outing. -- OR just to treat yourself to something special. ;)


Step One: Paint your nails with two coats of a solid matte color. I used Lapis of Luxury by Essie (one of my new favorite colors!) Let dry.
Step Two: On the tips, without trying to be perfect, paint two coats of your favorite bottle of sparkles. 

* Essie - Lapis of Luxury purchased at ULTA $8.00 // Milani - Gems purchased at Target $4.50 // Arrow Ring - Purchased at UO $4.99.


I hope your September is off to a great start. :) -- Jon and I are excited about the long weekend. We celebrated this morning with cinnamon rolls! Yum!

  15. This is great. I did 9 of my nails like little leopards (via SRSLYLIZ) and saw that you had commented there...

    Came here, and was so inspired by yours (in the middle of painting, mind you) that my thumb nail got a little glitter. So, 9 cats and one sparkle nail. :)
