This silver sparkly glitter nail design is absolutely perfect for any situation. While silver glitter nails are especially popular around the holidays, adding a little glitz to the festive season with their sparkle, they are a nail design you can wear year-round, adding a pop of fun to any season or event! Glitter nail designs are fun and chic with an undeniable wow factor.
Silver Sparkly Glitter Nails Tutorial: Create Oval Nail Shape
This silver sparkly glitter nails design is so versatile that it can be created on any nail shape, looking amazing on all shapes. I chose an oval nail shape for an elegant but practical mani. Oval nails are complementary to all hand shapes and are durable because of the gentle angle of the nail tip.
An oval nail is in the most simple form an elongated version of round nails. To create an oval shape nail file the nail tip into a somewhat egg shape keeping all edges rounded and soft. File from both nail edges to a center point but keep the tip rounded to prevent creating an almond nail shape.
With rounded nail designs, always finish with a fine-grit file to create a smooth flawless edge.

When choosing a silver sparkly polish for this look, don’t make the mistake of choosing any glitter polish. Most glitter polishes are a clear polish base with suspended glitter. You won’t be able to achieve this look no matter how many coats of polish you paint. Instead, choose a glittery silver or gray-based polish.
