There are so many different nail trends happening these days that it’s hard to keep up. 

I know the struggle of wanting to try all sorts of nail trends but not wanting to spend a ton of money at the nail salon and not being 100% sure if you’ll like how they look.

But here’s a fun little fact for you – you can utilize two different nail trends at once. It’s time to get inventive and try what’s known as ‘nail layering!’

Nail layering is a great way to use two nail trends to rock an amazing manicure. I know it may sound like you’d be doing something weird, like layering several fake nail tips on one finger, but no. You’re layering two different styles or nail techniques to add more depth to your manicure.

The best and most efficient way to practice nail layering is to use your favorite go-to opaque nail polish shades and top it with some kind of additional shade or design that’s more translucent and shimmery. 

If you’re interested in nail layering and spicing up your next manicure, here are some ideas for you!

Confetti or sparkle nails

If you want your nails to get you in a celebratory mood, use a layering technique to create confetti nails! You start with a nude base color on your nails and hit it with a glossy top coat.

Next, add confetti nail polish with bits of glitter and sparkles in various colors and shapes. Add one more layer of top coat once your nails are nice and festive. Then bam! You’re ready to party.
