Simple nail art may seem like a bit of an oxymoron, but today we’ll show you it’s not all tiny brushes and obscure art supplies. These manicures are easy enough for beginners, yet chic enough for nail art pros. And they can all be completed in just three steps! Because wouldn’t we all rather look like we spent hours slaving away on our masterpiece, but really finish our mani’s in minutes?
We spotted this glitter manicure on LaurenConrad.com, and just had to share it. For this simple and sparkly manicure, you can forget the nail polish all together. All you need is a base coat, top coat and the fine-grain glitter of your choice.
With a little help from your favorite loose pigment eyeshadow (we used L’Oréal Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Liquid Diamond), this fresh take on a metallic manicure will be yours.
We love the look of a clean stripe across the nail. Skip the stress of doing it free hand, and take scissors to your nail stickers. We snipped essie Sleek Stick in Steel the Show for our stripes.
