How to create a star confetti accent nail with customized glitter polish

Is there such a thing as too much bling? Doubtful. Glitter polish comes in an array of colors, but what if you can’t find the shade you’re looking for? Sometimes, you just have to make your own by adding your favorite glitter powder to a multicolored glitter polish.
This spangly manicure pulls out all the stops. It combines semi-transparent jelly nail polish with glitter polish, but it doesn’t stop there. Glitter powder and holographic stars give this design a celebratory feel that’s just right for graduation or any celebration.
- Violet jelly nail polish (Makartt, Crystal Violet)
- UV or LED lamp
- Extreme Post-it notes
- Multicolored glitter gel polish (Gelish, Lots of Dots)
- Purple glitter powder
- Toothpick
- Flat nail art brush
- Holographic confetti stars in red, silver and blue
- Sealer nail gel (Gelish, Top It Off)
Fierce League
1. Apply two coats of violet jelly polish to the nails, curing them between coats with the UV or LED lamp.
2. Place a dime-sized portion of multicolored glitter polish onto the Extreme Post-it note pad. Add some purple glitter to the polish, and mix it together with a toothpick to create a custom color.
3. Apply the glitter mixture to your nail with a flat nail art brush.
4. While the gel polish is still wet, place several holographic stars onto the nail using the toothpick. When you’re happy with the design, cure the wet gel with the lamp.
5. Protect your masterpiece by applying a single layer of sealer nail gel, then cure it with the lamp.
You’re ready to party! Stay pretty!
