Good evening, all! I’m back with another manicure that’ll have you facing prom couture with confidence. Let’s not waste time! Today’s manicure is…

… Glistening Nails!!!! Want a stunning manicure with little-lacquer-labor? (LOL) Then this mani is perfect for you! Would you believe this glam look can be achieved with no tools and JUST polish? Then scroll down to see the polishes/tools list and step-by-step; believe it! 🙂 Enjoy!


Polishes/Tools used in this design:

Zoya: Anchor Basecoat

Revlon: Pure Pearl

NCLA x CutePolish: Having a Polish Blast

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri: In A Flash

Sally Hansen Insa-Dri: Topcoat

Step 1:

Apply your basecoat, after optional moisturizing lotion, oil, or butter if you have time.

Step 2:

Apply two to three coats of a white pearly polish to your pointer, ring, and thumb nails. Wait 2-4 mins between coats. 

Step 3:

Now apply a jelly-based glitter polish to your middle finger. Wait 2-4 mins between coats. (optional: you can turn this into a #manihighlightnail by filing and shaping it shorter than your other nails; see more about that threesixtynails trend in a recent blog post HERE)

Step 4:

Finish off your polish with a pearlescent color shift polish to your pinky. Wait 2-4 mins between coats.

Step 5:

Keep your nails safe as you dance the night away with a glossy fast-drying topcoat!


See how easy this classy nails are? Just some pretty polish (which you can purchase conveniently at the links provided from the Nail Shop in the polishes/tools list) and that’s all! Share your re-creations and/or lovely prom manicures with #threesixtynails!
