DIY Black Manicure With a Silver Glitter Topcoat

Update Black Polish With a Sparkling Topcoat

A black manicure is a fashion staple, but adding a touch of shimmer creates the perfect go-with-everything party manicure. Keep your nails trimmed short and use a file to get your desired shape. Next, apply two coats of your favourite black lacquer — I used Essie Nail Polish in Licorice ($18.95). There are plenty of scintillating topcoats to choose from this season. For this particular manicure, I opted for Butter London Nail Lacquer in Fairy Cake ($45, set of three), which features fine silver and holographic glitter in a pale grey polish. The sheer base mutes the severity of the black polish and adds a dose of multifaceted glitter in one coat.
