Confetti Bubblegum Nail Art

Friday, May 11, 2012

Lately I've had an itch to get on this nail art train. I thought to myself 'I have two painting degrees, I should be able to fashion some killer nails right?'

So here is my first attempt, Confetti Bubblegum Nails. It's super easy, keep reading to see how I did it! 

What I Used:

1. A base coat to protect my nails such as Sally Hansen Miracle Nail Thickener 
2.  Wet n' Wild Wild Shine in Tickled Pink (no 402) ** A GREAT color, and its only $.99!!
3.  My glittery nail polish of choice, Essie's Set In Stones
4.  A quick dry topcoat like Jordana 60 Second Dry
5.  My FAVE shiny topcoat, Looks Wet by inm

Start out with a base coat and let dry completely, then apply 2 coats of your primary color, in this case I chose Tickled Pink by Wet n' Wild. Next brush on your glitter polish about three quarters of the way down each nail, once this tacks  up a bit apply another coat of glitter one quarter of the way down the nail so you get a gradient effect. Apply a quick dry top coat the speed up the drying process, and once your nails are bone dry apply a high shine top coat to keep the glitter from chipping and give you a professional sheen, and that's it, super easy!

Have fun with this super easy manicure! Try it with different base colors and varying glitter colors, its a super versatile design!

What color combos would you use?
