These Halloween glitter nails are perfectly festive, and they’re so quick to do!

It only takes just 3-easy steps and requires virtually no effort—making it perfect for beginners. Let’s get started!

Tools and materials:

  • Dip powder
  • Base coat
  • Coffee filter (optional)
Pouring dip powder

1. Pour your dip powder

Pour your dip powder into a container that will make it easier to dip your entire nail into and allow it to lay flat. I’m using a coffee filter.

This step will allow an even application with only one dip. 

Applying base coat

2. Apply a base coat

Apply a base coat to the nails. The base coat acts will allow the dip powder to adhere better to the surface of your nail.

Dipping nail

3. Dip nail

Lay your nail flat into the dip powder.

If you don’t have enough dip powder to completely cover the nail, either manipulate the coffee filter or gently roll your nail into the powder to ensure you’re getting the powder on the sides as well.

Progress shot

If your nail is laid flat enough, it should be completely covered like this without any uneven patches.
