Plan Your Party Manicure: New Year’s, Holidays, and Even Tonight!Dec 8, 2012 @ 9:00 am
Glitter is on everyone’s radar this time of year! Get your nails holiday-ready with a glitzy manicure, like this two-step nail art kit from Ciaté ($19, sephora.com). Unlike a regular mani, the Sequined Manicure Kit delivers a raw, brilliant finish. “It adds instant texture and depth to your manicure that others just want to touch,” Ciaté founder, Charlotte Knight, told InStyle.com. To get a perfect at-home mani, Knight suggests you start with clean, oil-free nails. (Swipe nail beds with remover to ensure.) Then, apply one coat of the paint pot shade and let it dry. Next, apply a second coat and sprinkle a generous amount of the glitter onto wet nails until you have created a heavy layer. Gently sweep off excess powder using the little black brush and let nails dry completely.
