Prom nails are one of the most fun beauty aspect of the prom season. Some girls head to their favorite salon and do the typical pink and white tips, others will opt for a color or airbrush, and others choose to do their nails themselves at home. Lionesse has an awesome idea to really set off your prom look – Shimmer Nails with Lionesse Mineral Pigment Shimmers! This cool idea is simple and easy to accomplish at home, and today we have Beauty Blogger Sarah McCormick here with us to give you the rundown on how you can get the look.
Lionesse Prom Shimmer Nails
Hello, ladies! It’s great to be here again today. Today, I would like to give you guys an idea of how you can create your very own custom nail polish – and all you will need are the following items:
- Solid nail polish color of your choice – I used Cinderella in Sinful Colors
- Lionesse Shimmer – I used SH-09, which is a sort of gold/pearl hue
- Clear nail polish
- A small bottle cap
- Q-tip for mixing
- Paper towels to avoid mess and spillage
Once you’ve gathered all of your items, it’s time to get started!
Step 1: Paint your nails with two coats of your favorite color nail polish – or one that will match your dress perfectly. Allow them to dry fully.
Step 2: Into the small bottle cap, using a Q-Tip, mix together clear fingernail polish and a sprinkle or two of the Lionesse Mineral Shimmer pigment of your choice. Stir well to ensure the polish is well blended. If you want more color, add more Shimmer powder. There is no right or wrong way to do this – it’s all based on personal preference!
Step 3: Using the brush from the clear nail polish bottle, apply the custom colored nail polish to your nails in any pattern you like. I chose to do an ombre effect as it looked really pretty with the blue. The colors reminded me of either cotton candy, babies, or clouds as the sun is setting in the sky. Gorgeous!
Step 4: Complete this process on all of your nails until you finish adding the custom Shimmer color to your nails. Some other variations of using the color could be to paint your tips only, somewhat like a French manicure, painting chevron styled tips onto your nails with nail stickers, or using the color by itself. The possibilities are endless – customize the look to fit whatever you need and want.
Step 5: Allow your nails to air dry, or let them sit under a drying lamp. Voila! Shimmery, beautiful nails and it only requires the above items and a little free time. Your nails will look like a pro salon spent the day doing them when you use Lionesse shimmers for adding color and style to your prom look.
