DIY Tiffany Blue and Glitter Ombre Nail Art

Get This Glittery Ombré Manicure in 3 Easy Steps

Nothing says party season quite like a touch of sparkle, especially on your nails. With Essie's Where's My Chauffeur ($18.95) and Beyond Cozy ($18.95) from the brand's Winter 2012 collection, you can create a sophisticated nail art look with minimal effort. The Tiffany-esque blue provides an unexpected pop of colour for the party season, and the gold micro-glitter is the perfect way to add a dazzling embellishment. The only extra tool you need is a disposable makeup sponge to get this gorgeous look.

Step One: After applying a base coat — I used Butter London Nail Foundation ($24.95) — apply two coats of the bright turquoise shade.

Step Two: Rip off a small piece of a makeup sponge; the ripped edge gives you the best texture to create the ombré effect. Pour a little glitter polish from the bottle onto a piece of paper and dab the sponge into a drop of the polish. Next, apply the polish-dipped sponge to the base of the nail, moving up to the middle of the nail. Be sure to apply a higher concentration of glitter polish at the base to create that ombré effect.

Step Three: Finish by sealing your design with a top coat, like Butter London Hardwear P.D. Quick Top Coat ($27).
