Glitter heart mani tutorial

Hello loves!

For this mani, you will need:


A base color, a metallic color, a glitter polish, annnd washi tape!

I used:


{one} Fold your washi tape in half and cut out half a heart.

{two} When you open up the washi tape, it will be in the shape of a heart! Place on the nail you wish to paint and press firmly to make sure all edges are flat.

{three} Using the metallic polish, paint over the heart. You want to use the metallic polish first to fill in all of the shape, since the glitter polish can't do this! Let this polish dry for one minute.

{four} Apply the glitter polish over the heart. Don't be afraid to use a lot so that you get enough glitter!

{five} Peel back the washi tape immediately and let your nail dry.


I love this for Valentine's Day! But then again, I'm always up for gold glitter ;)

Hope everyone has a great Thursday!

Love, Cait
