Gray Glitter Backwards French Manicure

I can’t get enough of my gray nails for Fall… I just think they’re the perfect color for the moment; not too dark, not too light. Saying that, I spent about 3 weeks with my single hematite glitter nail and wanted to switch it up. So using the same colors – 2 coats of RGB nail polish in “Steel”, Martha Stewart glitter glue in Hematite and a Chanel extreme shine top coat, I created a bit of a backwards French Manicure.

After applying a bit of glitter glue to the base of my nail, I used the tip to carefully spread it out were I want it to land. When the first coat dries, I add another, then a few top coats to set it. It’s very subtle but still festive and fun.
