Who cares if it’s raining? It’s the first day of Summer Vacation, we’re still going to have fun! I had been hearing about Glitter Toes for a long time. Basically you go to a nail salon and have them apply a very heavy-duty gel to your toes. The plus side is that this gel stays on for a long time, the downside is that it is very hard to get off.
So last week when the clever and talented Kami at No Biggie posted about a easy way to have the Glitter Toes look without the fuss, I was all ears. Thanks Kami!
- Pick out a nail color you like and a coordinating glitter. I found some awesome Martha Stewart glitter at Walmart that has pretty much every color of glitter there is.
- Paint your toenails and while paint is still wet, sprinkle glitter all over each individual toe to cover well. You will need to lay a piece of paper under the toes to minimize the mess and to catch the leftover glitter so you can use it again.
- You can brush off the excess glitter with a small paintbrush, but make sure not to brush directly on the toenail or you can mess up the paint job.
- Paint a clear top coat over the glitter to help keep it contained and to add a shine to the sparkle.
