DIY Glitter Toes

I have been hearing so many people talk lately about getting Glitter Toes done at their Salon or Beauty Parlor!  Maybe I am hiding under a rock or something…but I truly had no idea what Glitter Toes were!  However, when I saw them…..I fell in LOVE!  I absolutely love glitter….and on your toes…even better!  Sadly, a salon pedicure is not exactly in my budget….so I decided to do it myself! (:  Ok, I might have cheated slightly and asked a girl who does Glitter Toes for people in a salon what it entails…..and this is what I came up with {{my DIY version}}!

WARNING: This post contains pictures of my feet…and I HATE my feet, but you can’t get a detailed tutorial without pictures!  So….don’t say I didn’t warn you!!! (:

Supplies

  • Nail color similar to your glitter color {{base color}}
  • Clear Top Coat
  • Very fine glitter {{looks like dust}}
  • Small paint brush

Start by applying your base color to one nail at a time.  After you apply your base color on one nail, sprinkle your glitter over the nail polish while it is still wet.  {{If you do this over a piece of paper, you can save the extra and use it later}}

Once you have painted your base coat and applied the glitter to all of your toe nails, let it dry slightly.

Now, shake off any excess glitter onto your paper.

Use a dry paint brush to brush off any remaining glitter around your nails. {{Do not use the brush on your nails}}

Allow to dry well & apply your top coat twice, allowing to dry in-between each layer of top coat.

I seriously could not believe how easy it was!  I have had my nail polish on for 2 weeks now, and it has not chipped at all.  The glitter makes it pretty hard and tough!  I have gotten so many compliments on my toe nails!  Of course, I could not resist making my daughters toes glittery as well…and because I take pictures of EVERYTHING….we had to get a picture of her cute little Glitter Toes!

I hope you are enjoying your summer & your snazzy DIY Glitter Toes!

These are SO cute! I really think I need to run to the store and buy up all their glitter. I love this idea! Plus, it doesn't break the bank. Thanks for sharing :)

Ha ha ha. My daughter got nail polish with glitter in it from the Easter bunny and I jacked some a while back. I put a base coat first and the clear coat over the top so it would last longer and it was really cute. She has pink and purple. The only downside is, it's REALLY hard to get off. :o( But I'm still gettin' into it again and puttin' some on today. :o)

Hahha you are funny! You have cute feet :) What a fun festive idea!! I just bought the pre made glitter polish but this makes it a little bit more original when you do it yourself!
