French Funfetti: A Glitter Ombre Inspired by Birthday Cake

Play button
If happiness could be captured in a mani, we think it’d be this one. Our Limited Edition Funfetti Dip Powder cascades across each nail with an explosion of color and shapes. Reminiscent of sprinkles and confetti cake, we love this technique for building up an ombre glitter French mani.
PRO TIP: Make sure you thoroughly prep nails to ensure adhesion & long-lasting wear! Push back cuticles, create a rough texture on the nail plate by filing, and sanitize thoroughly.

Step 1
  • Apply a thin coat of Step 1 Bond to the entire nail and allow it to dry completely.
Step 2
  • Apply a thin coat of Step 2 Base and immediately dip fingernail into Base & Finish Powder.

PRO TIP: Avoid getting the product onto cuticles, powder will pick up wherever Base is applied.

Step 3
  • Apply a second coat of Step 2 Base and immediately dip fingernail into color powder. Here we are using NA21.

PRO TIP: Brushes may harden or pick up color powder during application. Simply switch them between Brush Softener for easy cleaning & workability.

Step 4
  • Tap finger to remove loose powder, & use a pointed tool like a toothpick or Jelly Pusher to remove excess powder from the cuticle line. Then use a fluffy brush to sweep off excess powder. Repeat for more coverage.
