DIY Speckled Nails - The Neverending Pile Challenge: Pastels

Hey Fellas! How was the weekend? Mine was ok. Did nothing exciting.  Today I have Speckled nails using Pastel color and glitter polish.


For this mani, I used Maybelline Coloroma's Absinto shade, its a sheer minty green polish. I bought this a few months back but didn't get an opportunity to use it. I clubbed it with Maybelline's ColorShow Clearly Spotted polish to create this look. It looks so nice and cool. 


Here is a quick tutorial for speckled nails effect -

  •  Paint nails with a layer of polish of your choice. I used Absinto and allowed it to dry.
  •  Once the base is dry, apply a layer of glitter polish. I used Clearly Spotted and allowed it to dry
  •  Repeat the first two steps. Make sure you wait between the coats to dry before proceeding with next layer of polish.
This is NOT a technique that I have discovered, its used by lot of nail artists. You can check out Lucy's tutorial for Speckled nails here - http://lucysstash.com/2013/03/diy-speckled-nails-with-tutorial-diy.html
