3,2,1…Dazzle: The Perfect NYE Nail DIY

You’ve got the perfect outfit, the right shoes, and exciting plans for this NYE. All you need is this dazzling DIY to complete your look. It’s a real showstopper, but surprisingly easy to recreate!

Pro tip: keep your base layer tacky or layer on some clear polish so the holographic triangles stick. You can also dip your q-tip in clear polish to easily pick the triangles up for application.

What You Need:

Polish of your choice (we used a deep purple)
Some holographic paper or foils
Tweezers or a q-tip
Clear top coat

How to Get the Look:

    Tried this multiple times and haven’t had much success. This is extremely difficult and took two people to get a somewhat decent result.
