DIY Nails: Holiday Glitter Half Moons

 Once again my nails are glittering and shimmering, but with two showstopping colors in a half moon design. This nail look makes me think of a glam holiday, it's so much fun and great to look at while I'm taking my exams! So many different different glitter combos are possible with this nail design, all you need to create the look are two solid  colors and two glitter polishes that are similar in color with the two solids. You will also need a clear base and top coat, nail polish remover, and about 2 Q-tips. Keep on reading for the steps to recreate my nail look.
  1. Begin with clean nails and coat them with a clear basecoat.
  2. Take a solid purple polish and coat from the bottom half of your nail to the middle.
  3. Dip a Q-tip in nail polish remover and with windshield wiper motions, create a half moon of the purple polish.
  4. Take a solid brown polish and paint the nail starting from the edge of the purple half moons to the tips.
  5. Go back with a sparkly purple and with a careful hand apply it on top of the solid purple.
  6. Add a glittery gold on top of the solid brown polish.
  7. Use any color glitter striper and define the half moon.
  8. Let your nails dry, then apply a clear basecoat.
The solid nail polish colors help the nails to stand out and pop on your nails while the glitter gives the overall glam look. Let me know if you decide to try out this nail look in the comments below.
