Black Glitter French Tip Nails: How to Achieve the Look
As with any French tip set, longer nails are better to allow for a more striking look and you can add some intricate nail designs like stripes or dots. With shorter nails, you can add a sleek black glitter French tip and experiment with glitter top coats.
When it comes to shaping your nails, you can keep your nails classically square or experiment with coffin or pointe tips for an edgy twist on the classic French manicure.
If you’re planning on going to the salon for your set, many manicurists now stock black tips that they can apply as part of your set, this ensures perfect symmetry throughout your whole set!
How to Do Black Glitter French Tip Nails at Home
Feeling inspired to give this bold new style a try at home? Remember, when it comes to doing your nails yourself, great prep is your best friend!
Clean your nails with a nail polish remover for a grease-free base to work from.
Then you can file and shape your nails as required, paying attention to creating a smooth edge with a buffer. Push your cuticles back to elongate your nails and use a good quality cuticle oil or cream to keep them soft.
Before you apply polish, always wipe over each nail with some extra remover to ensure you get rid of any residue from the filing.
French tips can be tricky for newbies to master, so to minimize error we would recommend starting simple with shorter nails with a squared-off edge.
Allow your base color to dry completely before you add on the black tip – you don’t want to be working on top of a smudged base!
Carefully sweep over the sleek black glitter polish on the very tip of the nail, starting with a very thin line and adding until you get the desired tip length.
Carefully wipe away any errors with nail polish remover on a Q-tip. Always finish with a coat of good-quality top coat to minimize chipping and make your set last longer.
Voila! Perfect French tips with a black glitter twist.
