New Year Eve Last Minute Nails (step-by-step)

So just now I decided to change my nail colour to this blue and I took pictures of step-by-step how to achieve these nails, which a lot of people seemed to like.

You will need OPI base coat, Illamasqua Phallic, Deborahh Lippmann Today was a Fairytale and top coat (Umbrella), and a sponge

1. Apply two coats of the midnight blue 

2. Apply the glitter colour on the top 1/3 to 1/4 of your nail, similar to if you had a french manicure. And paint it per nail, don't do it all at once.

3. Immediately after you have applied that glitter, use a sponge and blend it out by smudging it  
 (a semi-gradient effect).

* step 2 and 3 go pretty much hand-in-hand*

I continued doing that to the rest of my fingers.

4. Apply top coat.

Awkward hand modeling...

Now we're done with the nails, I hope this step-by-step helped! I'd love to see how yours turned out!
