New Years Eve Blinged Out Nails

New Years Eve is tomorrow which gives us girls all the excuse to wear tight dresses and sparkly jewelry. I’m going to Chicago for NYE and because my dress will be pretty tame… I decided to have a little fun with my nails.

Unfortunately, I spent a lot of my money buying Christmas presents for my family so I couldn’t afford to get them done professionally at a nail salon. But no worries, blinging out your nails from home is an easy and cheaper alternative!

All you need is a standout nail polish color, top coat, a nail diamonds kit (you can buy them at a beauty supply store like Sally’s), and a toothpick.

1. Paint your nails with two coats of your nail polish except for the finger you want to bedazzle (I did my ring finger) only paint one coat.

2. Pour out a little blob of top coat on a piece of paper.

3. Paint the second layer on your chosen fingernail.

4. Dip one end of your toothpick into the topcoat. Then use your toothpick to pick up a diamond…you want to pick it up from the diamond side so the flat surface of the diamond is at the bottom.

5. Stick the diamond on your wet nail.

6. Repeat to fill the entire nail. Or you can make a design using the diamonds. Finish off with a layer of top coat.

I covered my ring finger with different colored diamonds but you could also do a line of diamonds in the middle or in a diagonal, make a flower, or anything really, just experiment and have fun with it. It may take a bit of patience and practice but you’ll get the hang of it and stand out on NYE with your at home blinged out manicure when you go out that no one will know you didn’t spend lots of money for.
