How to apply iridescent nails

A nice neutral manicure has its time and place, but who can resist a sparkly iridescent look? Whether you're getting glam for a special occasion or simply changing up your routine, this iridescent manicure will make you smile. The all-out sparkle effect comes courtesy of holographic nail powder.
For this version, gold was chosen, but you can pick any shade your heart desires. To keep this golden glow from chipping, use a gel polish base and top coat. You'll need just a few things, but make sure you cure the polish each time you add a new layer to ensure your handiwork sets properly.
