Sprinkle on the pixie dust to add some texture and glamour to your digits.

Textured manicures are trending this Fall season. But if you still haven’t been convinced of the look, try out this design to get a similar effect using typical arts and craft glitter.

What you will need: Loose glitter dust, red polish, clear polish, base and top coat, some q-tips and nail polish remover.

1. Prep the nail with the base coat. Apply two coats of red polish to the entire nail.

2. Once dry, dab on some clear polish to the top of the nail bed without getting too close to the nail matrix. Sprinkle on the glitter dust while the clear polish is still wet. Shake off any excess glitter and clean up around the nail using a q-tip dipped in polish remover.

3. Let the design completely dry and finish off with a top coat.
