For those who like the bling factor in their lives, the best you can do is to glam up with some glittery nail art.

This trend has indeed become so popular that every day we come across new nail designs that are floating around in the fashion world.

For some dazzling nails, you can try glitter packed creations of piled on gems or rhinestones, elegant swirls in gold foil or gold chrome powder, sparkly diamonds to coloured crystals or we can just draw some inspiration from nature with elegant flower nail designs. You can show off your love for nail creativity and love for all things sparkly with these designs. They are perfect for a lavish party or a cozy night in.

STEPS TO GET THE LOOK:

  • Choose a nail polish that matches your dress or theme. If no theme, a dark polish with shimmer can be used.
  • Apply a coat of clear polish and use nail art tweezers to place the embellishments or floral decoratives of your choice.
  • Make sure you start with the bigger jewels or you can outline with the smaller ones.
  • The idea of using glitter on one nail only is great for those who have shorter fingers. This prevents overcrowding and makes the nails look great instead of over the top.
  • You can use the small embellishments as decoration on the other nails too. Apply a layer of top coat to secure the nail art.
  • With so many trendy nail art choices, bring on the bling and you surely will make a perfect style statement at any social or a private gathering!
