How To: Get Glam Metal Nails – NOTD

I’ve had an almost-obsession with painting my nails lately, and today I wanted to go for something a bit…metallic. I have been loving bright colours lately, so for a bit of a change I went for a black and silver combo. For the black base, I used Rimmel’s 60 Seconds Nail Polish in 800 Black Out, and Beauty UK’s Shatter Polish in Glam Rock.

Beauty UK Shatter Polish in Glam Rock

I umm’d and ahhh’d about what to call the nail look, and settled on ‘Glam Metal’. ‘Glam Rock’ was the firs thing that came to mind, which was probably because I subconsciously remembered the name of the Shatter Polish. I do have to admit that I am getting slightly tired of the crackled nail trend – so, what’s next? I’m predicting nail stickers, although I think the application of them might take a little getting used to. I will try to master the art to pass on to you guys!

What are you guys rocking on your nails today? Let me know in the comments below!

Stay Creative,

    I wear one color on my nails, but put a different color on my ring finger. I usually paint the nail my ring finger a few shades lighter or darker than the color on the rest of my nails. I love it, at the moment I have Rimmel London’s 60 Seconds Nail Polish in Green with Envy on my ring finger and Bourjois Paris 1 seconde nail polish in Gris asphalte. =)
