Glitter Cuticles Are The Coolest Way To Cover Up Your Mani Mistakes

Glitter cuticles are the latest nail trend that is everything we never knew we wanted.

Most of the time when we're painting our nails, the goal is to avoid getting anything on our cuticles, but for the latest in nail trends, we'll make an exception. Introducing: glitter cuticles. (Because what haven't we put glitter on yet?)

The trend first came to our attention at New York Fashion Week during the Spring 2017 Rodarte show, when lead artist Tracylee presented the new mani to the world, and if you ask us, she definitely hit the nail on the head with this one (Ha. Ha. Ha.).


While getting polish all over your cuticles might be easy for some (that most definitely includes us), it can be tricky to make it look so chic. However, thanks to this tutorial from YouTuber and beauty blogger Harli G, you'll have fab-looking nails (err.. cuticles) in no time.

And as a bonus, you don't have to be super precise when you're painting your nails, because this trend will cover any slip-ups.

Step 1: Apply liquid bandage around your nail. Get as close as you can without actually touching.

Step 2: Sprinkle the glitter of your choice onto the skin surrounding your nails. (Harli recommends putting a piece of paper underneath to help contain some of the glitter flakes!)

Step 3: Use a fan brush to wipe away any excess glitter. (Although, is excess glitter really even a thing?)

While not meant for super-long wear, this look is fab for any occasion from casual to total glam. Happy glittering!
