We are always looking for a fun and new nail style to try out! “Firecracker nails” is a trending nail look that is perfect for New Years Eve! Start 2017 off with the perfect manicure! In four simple steps, you can have awesome nails everyone will be talking about. We teamed up with the Glam & Gowns vlog where intern Brooke and our lovely intern, Kayleigh, are here to show you how to perfect this nail look. Let’s get started!
Step 1: Start with a high-shine, jewel-tone base color. We are using a shiny, purple color from OPI, but you can use any color you would like! Paint two coats of this color on your nails.
Step 2: Next, choose a high pigmented pop of color to create the “firecracker” look. Paint stripes on your nails in a random scattered design to mimic fireworks. We used a very skinny, detail design brush for this step. As for this look, we decided to do blue and silver nail polish for the firecracker details. You can buy these nail polish brushes here! Once you have the brushes, you can use any color nail polish you have at home for the “firecracker” details. These brushes come in handy for any future nail designs you do too!

Step 3: Next, add a metallic color as your secondary pop of color. We used a sparkly, silver polish for this part. You can use as many different colors for the “firecracker” designs as you want! This creates a cool layering effect.
Step 4: Lastly, complete the look with a gold sparkle top coat. You can get creative and choose any sparkle color for this part!
Since we chose purple to be the base color, Brooke is wearing a bright purple dress to match this awesome nail look for New Years Eve!

This edgy, sexy style features a black and bronze sequin top and has a beautiful lace-up back that pairs perfectly with the high-waisted jersey skirt. The best part is that you can re-wear this style for another occasion by mixing and matching the top and skirt with other clothing items you already have to create countless new looks!
