The completed Glam Nails.

Why we love them:

These nails incorporate everything we love about nail art! The zig zag accent nail adds a funky twist to the nude and glitter trend - and of course we always love a full glitter nail! The matte top coat adds an effect we love, but this design can also be achieved with a regular top coat.

What you need:

  • Nail Art Brush (buy it in a set here)
  • White (we used OPI Alpine Snow, buy it here)
  • Black (we used Essie Licorice, buy it here)
  • Nude (we used Nails Inc. Porchester Square, buy it here)
  • Glitter (we used Nails Inc. Sloane Square, buy it here)
  • Base Coat (we used Essie, base coat here)
  • Matte Top Coat (we used Nails Inc.Westminster Bridge, buy it here)

What to do:

  1. Start with clean, dry nails. Paint each nail with base coat.
  2. Paint your thumb with glitter polish, and your index, middle, and pinky fingers with nude polish. Paint your ring finger with white polish. Two coats may be required.
  3. With the nail art brush, start by painting two full triangles in black polish (starting the bottoms at the middle of your nail) on the tips of your nails. Add half triangles on the edges if there is still room left over.
  4. With the nail art brush again, continue the zig zag about a 1/3 cm above the top of the black triangles. Continue this pattern until you reach the cuticle of your nail.
  5. Paint on the matte top coat after ensuring your nails are dry (so there is no running!), and allow to dry! Note: Two coats of matte top coat both lasts longer, and makes a more matte effect on your nails!
