Let's Get Nude!

Hello you lovely lot! Okay, so a new obsession has recently swept over me like a tidal wave and it's a colour I would have never expected myself to have fallen head over heels in love with. If you readers can't already tell, I usually like to surround myself in vibrant, cheerful colours (or on the occasional day, channel my inner Wednesday Addams) but recently I've been so partial to pastels and nude just happened to creep its way into my heart. Usually I'm the most vanilla person you'll ever come across when it comes to nail art, however I thought I might experiment a tad and add a touch of glitter to my newly nude nails, so they appear less naked (see what I did there?).

Firstly I applied about 3-4 generous coats of Rimmel 60 Seconds Rita Ora edition in 'Let's Get Nude', until the colour goes opaque. After leaving my nails to dry, I then delicately dab some glittered varnish onto the very tip of my nails, letting the glitter particles cluster heavily at the top. I then proceed to trickle my nail polish brush down ever so slightly the length of the nail to give my nail art the illusion of an ombre trickle down appearance. My glitter nail varnish is Avon's Color Trend Dazzler in 'Rose Gold'. You could also use a golden glitter nail varnish as your top coat, however the rose gold I believe just blends better with the nude and also has that lovely vintage feel to it! This simple look is definitely my staple nail art for the summer: it's quick, easy and oh so sparkly!

  1. Oooh this is so pretty! I love the idea of ombre-ing the glitter as well. Def gonna give that one a shot! xx

  4. I love nude nail polish! It looks so polished and I don't get in trouble with my fife + drum corp and mom for wearing it :P
    The glitter is a beautiful touch! My favorite nude polish is sephora by opi nonfat soy half caff :P

  5. I love the little addition of glitter! I like a nude nail too, but right now I'm embracing summer with bright turquoise nails. xx
