TUTORIAL: Gold fireworks nail art

The longest night of the year is coming closer and it is time to put on your shiniest dresses and wear the most glittery nail art to celebrate the coming of the New Year in style. 

Today I have for you a festive and simple nail art tutorial that will make you the star of the night with mini fireworks exploding on your fingertips ;)

For this manicure you will need a black polish, ideally it has some micro glitters mixed in, I choose Essence Gold old buffy. Then you require 2 polishes with at least 2 different sized glitters, I used China glaze Angel wings and Catrice Two Million dollar baby. You will also need some gold caviar beads and some simple gold round studs.

Step 1: Apply base polish. Make sure it is dark.
Step 2: Apply the micro glitter nail polish. But only on the top part of the nail. Apply it in layers so it looks like a glitter gradient. 
Step 3: Apply the bigger glitters over the smaller ones. Also add some of them over the black part of the nail so it will look like a real glitter gradient.
Step 4: Apply the big gold studs. But a bit under the edge of the nail so there will be room for the caviar beads.
Step 5: Apply the caviar beads around the top edge of the nail, stop applying them when you are on the middle of the nail.
Step 6: Apply the small gold beads under the big round stud. Add as many as you like since this will be the longest line of all the nail art, so it should be longer then the previous lines you created on the edge of the nails.
Step 7: Apply some random caviar beads in the empty spots between the edge lines and the middle line made of beads. 

The finished result looks amazing! I love how festive and fun they look. Just don't forget some strong gel top coat that will make sure you don't loose any particles while celebrating :)
