Mani-Monday: Fall Sparkle

This nail design may be one of my favorites because it is so simple and quick to create, yet is it so classy and it’s something different than just a simple plain mani. My Mint Sparkle nail look was so popular that I thought I would recreate it with a different color combination. You can create this design with so many different colors. To get this look:
You will need:
Base coat
Dark green nail polish
Sparkly green nail polish
Top coat
Makeup Sponge (optional)
Step 1: First, apply your base coat. Then apply two coats of your dark green polish. I used ‘Dark Room’ by Sephora by OPI. Let it dry for a few minutes.
Step 2: Next, using your sparkly green nail polish (you can use a gold or silver too), I used ‘Leaf Him at the Altar’ by Sephora by OPI, apply some on a small piece of makeup sponge and start lightly patting it along the cuticle only going halfway on the nail. Then pat on some more only at the base to intensify the color. Try to create a fading effect.
**If you do not have a makeup sponge, you can simply just use the brush of the polish. Using your sparkly green polish, start lightly applying the polish in upward strokes at the cuticle and stopping about half way. Try to create a fading effect. Apply the sparkly green polish over again but this time just at the base of the cuticle.**
Step 3: Lastly, apply a top coat and you’re done! It is classy and perfect for fall. Also it is so simple and quick!
