Nail Art Tutorial: Black, White, and Glitter All Over

Nail Art Tutorial: Black, White, and Glitter All Over

06.05.14

By James

Marta Warmuz of Canadian nail art blog ChitChat Nails captured our attention with a gorgeous set of mismatched nails! Monochrome wraps keep it neutral, while the glitter accent packs a glamorous punch. Follow along as Marta shows exactly how she got the look! 

  • What you will need to create this look:

    1. One package of nail wraps.  In this case I used NCLA It Don’t Matter black and white nail wraps (from the Harlow & Co collection).
    2. A complementary nail polish shade. In this case I used OPI Funny Bunny
    3. A bit of sparkle (if you feel so inclined). Marta used loose glitter from the BornPrettyStore.com and a matching base polish, Zoya Ziv.

  • Step 1:

    Apply the nail wraps first, so as not to ding/dent/smear your nail polish during application. Follow the application guidelines on the package for best results.

    SLIDE 2 OF 5
  • Step 2:

    Paint all remaining nails with a white cream polish, or whichever color matches the nail wraps you are using. In this case, the white cream background really allows for the black and white design to pop.

  • Step 3:

     It never hurts to add a little bit of bling! You can either use a glitter polish for this nail, or opt for a full glitter placement. For the glitter placement, you will need loose glitter, a matching base polish, and a toothpick. Pour a few of the glitter bits onto the lid; this is where you will pick up the glitter pieces, using the toothpick. Paint your nail with the base color that matches the color of the glitter. Now work quickly! While the base color is still wet, place one glitter at a time down and into the wet polish. When you are done, add one (or two) layers of top coat to keep those sparkles in place. This technique does require a bit of extra effort, but the final product will be well worth it; the ultra reflective surface is like no glitter polish!

    If you are feeling even more adventurous, alternate the accent nails on your opposite hand so that you have a common theme without perfectly matching nails.

    Now go flaunt your new look!
