On trend for Fall 2014 are nude nails and while sometimes less is more, glitter is always fabulous. To amp up the barely-there look, pair a fleshed-toned polish with some rhinestones to create a chic half-moon design.

What you will need:

Step 1

1. Apply a base coat to clean and filed nails. Once completely dry, paint two thin coats of nude polish on all the nails.

Step 2

2. Dab a glob of the glitter polish on a piece of paper and use a toothpick to pick up and place individual sequins. Apply evenly spaced out glitter pieces on the accent nail leaving a couple of open areas for gold rhinestones. To make sure the rhinestones stay in their spot, place a small dot of top coat over it.

Step 3

3. Use the sequins to create a half-moon on the rest of the nails and place a gold rhinestone anywhere along the line.

4. For extra flair, add a second line of glitter under the original half-moon on the middle finger. Once the design is dry, seal the look with a generous amount of top coat especially around the rhinestones.
