Textured nails, matte glittered nails, sand nails - or however you like to call them - are definitely a trend this season. From all the collections on the market, Zoya's Pixie Dust collection is my favourite. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to put your hands on it if you live in a country as mine. But that shouldn't prevent you from wearing the latest trend on your nails. In this post, I'll show you how!
If you don't know what I'm talking about, below is the picture of Dahlia, my favourite from this collection. The picture near it is my fake Dahlia nail art.
It is very easy to create your own textured nails if you follow the steps bellow. Firstly, paint your nails a coat of matte nail polish. The one I used is Illamasqua -Scorn. Then take your glitter and a fan brush (if you don't have one, any other brush will work; you can even pour the glitter directly from the box. While the polish is still wet, stick the glitter on it, whichever method of those mentioned above you use. Finally, clean your cuticles and the all the mess on your skin. It is important that you don't apply a shiny top coat, or else you won't get the matte-glitter effect. You get a perfect dupe for Zoya Dahlia.
You can do this using any colour of nail polish and its glitter corespondent. If you don't have any matte nail polish colour, just apply a matte top coat when everything's done. The glitter I used in this tutorial is this Acrylic Glitter Powder from Born Pretty. What do you think?
