I hope you are enjoying your Thursday! Today I have a little DIY nail art experiment to share with you. All these liquid sand polishes coming out had me thinking about what an actual sand manicure would look like. My pack of sand for crafts was calling to me.
It looks a little more like rock candy or pop rocks than sand. But I like it! I started off with a coat of Ulta Blue Streak. Then one finger at a time, I painted on another coat and dipped my nail in blue sand. I dusted off the extra sand with a fan brush. Finally, I topped it with a matte topcoat. I wanted the sand to stay on but keep the matte finish.
I imagine finer sand or glitter would with a matte topcoat would give a more definite sand like appearance.
