this look is so easy and quick to do, no fussing about with nail art pens or dotting tools here. just paint on a base coat followed by two thin coats of pure white polish (i had this one to hand).snowball manicure, martha stewart glitter, white glitter nails, christmas manicure, peanut buttered blog

before the white polish has dried, shake on your glitter. i used ‘sugar cube’ from my martha stewart iridescent glitter pack. tap your finger sharply on a hard surface to shake off any excess. once your nails are completely dry, use a cotton bud to gently wipe away glitter left around the nail bed.snowball manicure, martha stewart glitter, white glitter nails, christmas manicure, peanut buttered blogsnowball manicure, martha stewart glitter, white glitter nails, christmas manicure, peanut buttered blog
