Nails of the week | How To Create: French Fade with Glitter

I’ve done this manicure tons of times. It’s so easy to do, goes with everything and is so pretty. I’ve also done this manicure with gold glitter and pink glitter. It’s really easy to maintain.

To create this manicure

For the base I used Essie Sheer Fantasy, I apply 2-3 coats.

For the glitter tips I used a Ciate silver glitter

To apply the glitter, I first start with a light touch of the glitter and I lightly apply it in an ombre effect.

Usually I put a bit of glitter and then add more as the days pass.

What’s great about this manicure is that if it cracks you can just touch up the glitter.


This is a great manicure if you only use regular nail polish and want something that will last a bit longer. It usually lasts me a week and I add coats of glitter to touch it up.

You can mix and match with different bases and glitter colours. It doesn’t matter the brand of nail polish. Any sheer base and glitter will do 🙂

Love always,

Annabel xoxo
