Pink with Glitter Reverse French Nails of the Day.

Reverse French Manicure with Glitter

I've been wanting to try a reverse french manicure with glitter for a while now after seeing several photos on Pinterest, so I decided to give it a shot today. I've tried the regular reverse french and liked it a lot, but I thought adding glitter would be a fun twist since I love glitter tips in general. 

I used french manicure guides that I purchased from my local beauty supply store, but you can use tape if you'd like (just make sure to cut it so it's rounded) or garage sale stickers, reinforcement stickers, etc.

how to create reverse french manicure with glitter

It's that easy! You just have to be sure that your glitter is completely dry, otherwise the sticker can pull the glitter off. As an alternative to glitter polish, you can actually apply a clear coat of nail polish to the bottom portion of your nail, and spill some loose glitter on top. 

For the glitter, I used Maybelline Color Show Sequins Nail Polish in the shade Gold's Night Out with Milani Silver Jewel FX on top. 

The color on my nails is Essie Lion Around. I picked it up recently at my local TJ Maxx.

I think the result was really pretty and girly! 

What do you think? Have you tried this?

  3. This is really cute, I like the glitter by the cuticle instead of at the tip! It'll probably make the glitter last longer too as it can't chip so easily :) x

    1. Definitely look into the Maybelline Color Show Sequins. They are amazing, chunky and are opaque with two coats. Milani is also great, but you need several coats.

  15. Wow, I love the color combination you picked, very pretty and feminine, do you mind I ask why you put the sticker over the glitter polish?

    1. Thank you!

      You could paint your whole nail pink first (or color of choice) and then apply the glitter, but I wanted the glitter on my bare nail so it wouldn't look too thick. I covered the glitter so I could apply the pink precisely.

  26. This is so gorgeous and unique! I've never seen anything like it before! Would be a good idea to use for false nails that are growing out and you wanna mask the gap! And that essie color is just so pretty...
