Nail Art Tutorial: Party Nails

Nail Art Tutorial: Party Nails

12.31.15

By James

Along with that bottle of champagne, sparkly nail art is a New Year’s Eve necessity. Fariha of Nail Job shows you how to complete this mismatched mani. 

  • Supplies needed:

     

    • Basecoat
    • Sinful Colors Dream On
    • OPI Liquid Sand Honey Ryder
    • OPI Liquid Sand Alcatraz…Rocks
    • Topcoat (Optional)
    • Dotting Tool

     

    SLIDE 1 OF 11
  • Step 1:

    Apply your base coat. This step really helps with the longevity of your manicure.

    SLIDE 2 OF 11
  • Step 2:

    Apply two coats of the magenta polish to four fingers (thumb, index, ring and pinky) and Alcatraz Rocksto the middle finger.

    SLIDE 3 OF 11
  • Step 3:

     (This is for the index and pinky finger) Put a little bit of the Liquid Sand Honey Ryder on a piece of foil or palette of choice and apply four dots of it with your dotting tool. You can use other gold polishes, but the results are a little more vibrant with this particular polish as it is textured, opaque and quite glittery.

    SLIDE 4 OF 11
  • Step 4:

    Continue to place sets of four dots in a grid-like formation.

    SLIDE 5 OF 11
  • Step 5:

    Once the grid is formed, you can see that you have a fun glittery geometric pattern on your nails.

    SLIDE 6 OF 11
  • Step 6:

    If you want, you can add top coat. If you want to keep the Liquid Sand texture as an element of your manicure, you can leave out the top coat. 

    SLIDE 7 OF 11
  • Step 7:

    (Ring finger) Paint half of the nail with Alcatraz Rocks. Apply 2 coats to make it opaque.

    SLIDE 8 OF 11
  • Step 8:

    Use your dotting tool to make two rows of dots with Honey Ryder on the magenta side.

    SLIDE 9 OF 11
  • Step 9:

    Add top coat (or not).

    SLIDE 10 OF 11
  • Step 10:

     

    Make three rows of dots on your thumb nail. Finish with top coat. Done!
