2 Minute Gloss: How to do nail bling

June 18th 2014 / 0 comment

Expert nail technician Marian Newman shows us how to get fun, fabulous nails

One of the easiest ways to get fabulous nails in minutes without having to wait for polish to dry is by applying stick on nails. They are readily available on the high street, cheap and incredibly easy to use. Nails full of sparkle are great for parties, but sleeker and more sophisticated options are also available.

How to apply

Marian recommends using pre-glued stick on nails, as using a seperate pot of glue can lead to complications. To apply, simply peel off the sticky back, press each piece onto the corresponding size of nail and you're all done.

Experiment with embellishment

Another great range of products are embellishments which stick themselves to the nail with a pre-applied coat of varnish. To apply, simply add a layer of colour before using a thin piece of blue tack to pick up the embellishment, then place it wherever you want it on the nail and add a clear top coat to ensure a look that lasts.
