Since I am a freelance makeup artist, I always have body glitters in my makeup kit. I use them for my creative makeup work with my clients, like for Halloween events. This time, though, glitter won’t be used on the face but on nails! I’m turning this body glitter into a cool summer sparkle nail polish. Not only is it easy to do yourself, it’s fun too!

Before applying the nail polish, prep your nails. If you have dry and brittle nails like I do, or if you want to maintain healthy-looking nails, I have a recommendation for you! Use a nourishing oil like Sally Hansen Vitamin E Nail and Cuticle Oil on your nails. Massage and leave it overnight to soften your cuticles and keep your nails from breaking. I often like to opt for shorter nails as when my nails are long, they become more dry and prone to breaking. This is especially true as I wash the dishes by hand a lot. he Vitamin E Oil not only strengthens and nourishes your nails, it helps with nail growth too! Plus, it has been salon and dermatologist tested.

Here are 6 easy and fun steps to make your own Glitter Nail Polish: DIY_do-it-yourself_nail_art_polish_glitter_tutorial_sally_hansen_summer_smoothies_fingernails_4

1 Before applying the nail polish, prepare your glitter in a small container that has space for your fingernails to dip in., In this tutorial I used a lipstick cover (yep, my thumb can fit there!:) ).

2 Next, apply a base coat of nail polish to your clean nails. I use Sally Hansen Complete Care 7-in-1, which also can serve as the top coat. DIY_do-it-yourself_nail_art_polish_glitter_tutorial_sally_hansen_summer_smoothies_fingernails_6

3 Apply the first coat of colored nail polish on the fingernails. I chose a bright orange color (Hot Tamale) since it’s summer.

Do this for each nail, one at a time so the nail polish stays wet and the glitters stick on.

5 After you are done putting glitter on all your fingernails, wash off your hand in running water to remove any excess glitter.

6 To lock the glitter in, apply a clear top coat. Again, I use Sally Hansen Complete Care 7-in-1 nail polish. I’m impressed with this product as it offers all-in-one convenience, serving as a base and top coat, helping nail growth, strengthening nails, and giving nails a nice shine. It also has a patented formula which includes avocado oil, sea salt, pomegranate extract, and calcium. These ingredients all help to keep your nails moisturized, prevent staining, and give a healthy and smooth appearance. It is long-wearing too!

NAIL TIP: To dry your nails more quickly, have a small bowl of cold ice water ready next to you. Then, simply dip your nails into the bowl and keep them there for 2-3 minutes.

Here’s where I grabbed my Sally Hansen products at Walmart while I’m doing my errands. Stop by and let me know how Sally Hansen Complete Care 7-in-1 and their Vitamin E Oil works for you! :)
