DIY: PROM NAILS

Published 05/20/2015 by

Your prom look will be on point with this half-moon glitter mani!

We got our favourite nail artist, Elfi Lemieux, to create a prom-perfect manicure that proves the glitz doesn’t have to end with your shoes and accessories.

 

STEP 1: PREP THE NAIL

Start by prepping your nails: hydrating your cuticles, buffing, filing and shaping your nail. For this look, the nails were filed into an almond shape instead of the natural square. Once that’s done, wipe them clean with a bit of nail polish remover. Apply the base coat.

 

STEP 2: THE BASE

Apply 2-3 coats of your favourite gold glitter polish. Allow to dry.

 

STEP 3: HALF-MOON DETAILING

Once the gold glitter is dry, use a striping brush and a light pastel peach polish to paint a half-moon at the base of your nails.

 

STEP 4: THE FINAL TOUCH

And the final touch: the top coat. Make sure to seal the edge of the nails, that way your manicure will last even longer!
