Give your French tips a little holographic glitz with this pretty fade

Does your current manicure leave something to be desired? Want to give yourself the glamour treatment? Nothing beats glitter when you need a little pick-me-up or a change of attitude. A traditional French tip manicure has its merits, but this version has all the makings of a celebration.
Start with a translucent pink base coat, and then add two different holographic products. The chrome powder gives your nails a shiny iridescent look, while the glitter makes this style party-worthy. Before getting started, pick up some disposable eye shadow applicators and a fluffy eye shadow brush. Having dedicated nail supplies makes the process go faster and won’t ruin your makeup essentials.
