Chic of the Week: Stacie’s Sparkly Mani

Intricate nail art has been stealing the show in the beauty scene as of late. And while we can all appreciate a crazily detailed mani, what we love most are lovely manicures that are easy enough to do ourselves. When we were browsing around, we came across Stacie’s profile and discovered that getting gorgeous nails is quite simple! Congrats, Stacie… We loved your modern classic mani so much that we picked you as our newest Chic of the Week!
Chic of the Week: Stacie's Sparkly Mani
How lovely are Stacie’s light pink nails with sweet sparkly tips? They fit the aesthetic pretty perfectly, if you ask us. Here’s how we would get this gorgeous mani:

1. Paint your nails with 2 coats of soft pink or nude polish and let them dry.
2. Using a glittery polish, create a gradient effect starting with the tips of your nails and fading out into the middles. We suggest adding a few extra coats of glitter polish on the tips of your nails to make it look ombré. You can also pour out a little glittery polish onto a paper plate and use a makeup sponge to dab on the glitter.
3. Finish it off with a clear top coat, and…voila—you’re done!

This mani is so easy that you can recreate it in a snap and the finished product will look like it took you a lot longer than it actually did. Just one warning: It may result in an overabundance of compliments.

Congrats again to our newest Chic of the Week, Stacie!

Do you love this sparkly mani as much as we do? Will you give it a try?

    I am loving the ease of this beautiful manicure! I have to admit that my ensemble always looks polished but my nails are always unpolished or chipped and faded polished…eek!

  • Cesie Alvarez

    It seems so simple to do. Would loose glitter work just as well?

    Happy Casual Friday!

    oh my gosh! I’ve been out of the country since Thursday for my friend’s wedding and we didn’t have internet at the resort. When I got home last night, I checked my email and was like “”Why do I have so many LC friend requests?!”” lol
    This is a great surprise to come home to! Thank you so much.
    My favorite thing about this mani is that glitter is so durable, so it will look fresh for so much longer than regular polish.


    Women, however, decide when you want to take your jacket or shawl. Because that does not change the overall look of the outfit.
