DIY Party Season Metallic Manicure

Why You Should Mix and Match This Nail Art Look

There's no rule that demands manicure symmetry, you know. Instead, get playful with your nail art and try different designs on each nail. This sparkling combo nail design is fun and looks complicated, but it's easy to re-create. Start off with three complementary nail shades. I like to play with texture, so I opted for one creamy shade, a metallic hue, and a sparkling polish.

I used Essie Nail Polish in Absolutely Shore, Deborah Lippmann Nail Color in Believe, and Essie Nail Polish in Beyond Cozy. I painted my thumb and pinkie with the metallic polish, my index finger with the glitter polish, and my middle and ring finger with the creamy polish. Then I added some embellishments by adding a single rhinestone to the base of my middle finger and my pinkie. Next I added glittery polka dots to my ring finger, using the tip of a bobby pin. Lastly the look is finished with a layer of a high-gloss topcoat to seal everything in.
