Glitter Gradient Nails for Spring

Take Turquoise Varnish Up a Notch With This Easy Nail-Art Idea

With all the new makeup launches, it's pretty clear that turquoise nail varnish is the must-have shade for Spring and Summer. Not only does this blue-green colour pop against Springtime pastels, but also, it looks even cooler set against a golden sparkle.

For this mermaid-inspired look, I used the teal-hued Paul & Joe Nail Enamel in Caribbean (£10), along with the gold-glittered Deborah Lippmann Boom Boom Pow (£13
.11). Start off with a base coat like Butter London Nail Foundation (£15), and then swipe on two coats of the turquoise varnish. Next, dab the gold glitter polish on the base of the nail to create a gradient effect. Once you have your desired look, seal everything with a top coat like Essie Good to Go (£8.99) for fast-drying shine. Even if you're not soaking up some sun at the beach, one glance at your nails will take you there.
