China Glaze Holiday Glitter Tipped Nails Featuring For Audrey

China Glaze For Audrey Holiday NailsOK

Last week when I was playing around with China Glaze For Audrey I decided it might be festive to do a glittery tipped nail look with it as the base.

I kinda sorta like what I came up with. This was my first attempt at doing this kind of nail and it’s really pretty straightforward. I did learn that you have to use a nicely contrasting shade for the tip and also ensure the glitter is large enough. Initially I tried a different silver glitter and it was too fine and “sugary” so it didn’t show up as much.

For this I painted on two coats of For Audrey and let it dry for a few minutes. Then I painted the very tips with a coat of Blonde Bombshell. I let that dry for a few minutes. Then went back in and did a second coat of Blonde Bombshell and spread it a little further down the nail so it kind of fades out. That’s it!

Here I did the same thing just used Nova for the tips.

I think of the two I prefer the one with Blonde Bombshell, but both look festive to my eye!

    Festive indeed! I really like these looks, sparkly and elegant at the same time. China Glaze For Audrey and Nova is my favourite. I think For Audrey gets along with silver!

    Ahh the gold tipped glitter, I like especially. I think I wanna do glitter on the tips like this, over OPI I’m not really a waitress for Christmas. I’m really enjoying your nail art posts :)

    I am so going to try this look, as we’re invited to a TG dinner & I want something a bit festive. I’m terrible at nail designs but I think I can pull this one off with no problems. I have For Audrey, but I’ll probably use a different color depending on what I’m wearing. I normally like silver glitter, but the gold really look’s prettiest against FA.

    I like them both, but the one with Nova looks extra-icy and wintry to me!

    Such a fun and festive look! And one I can actually even do myself. Woo! I’m so gonna copy you. :)

    I like them both a lot, but I love silver and blue together.

    Really pretty look. And I agree with you about the Blonde Bombshell—I prefer that one over Nova. I think you’re having fun with nail art, no?

    One more thing, please. Could you tell me the name of the dotting tool that you ordered from Trans design? I think I’m ready to start dotting, LOL.

    This is a great way to “winterize” a typically summer/spring color. Love it!

    I love the blue and silver together! I did a similar look not too long ago, but reversed on the nail. I started with chg-grape pop, and topped with chg-techno on the lower half of the nail from the cuticle upwards into a reverse fade so just the top of the nail was solid purple and bottom was partly glittery. Makes me want to do a festive holiday mani now!!

    I like to nova tips best, and I love that you used FA for holiday nails. I love an non-traditional element of color for fun.

    I love how you are mixing it up with glitta!

    Hi! I love the For Audrey with silver/nova. I am pretty new to this and was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to do this technique, or links to a tutorial or anything?? It’s gorgeous!
