Actress Vanessa Hudgens always has her eyes on the details, making sure that she looks absolutely gorgeous from the tips of her perfectly manicured fingers, all the way down to her expertly chosen pointed-toe heels, whatever the event! The 26-year-old star stepped out for the premiere of MTV's The Shannara Chronicles on December 4 rocking her usual sexy boho chic style to perfection in a plunging House of CB black dress with lace sleeves and a thigh-high split up the front, which she then teamed with a metallic box clutch and her usual assortment of jewelry.
Aside from her gothic, high-definition eye makeup - and that lovely shade of berry lipstick that she completely rocked - our keen beauty-obsessed eyes spotted Vanessa's glossy metallic-tipped manicure, giving her fingertips a dazzling and eye-catching edge!
Master the metallic manicure!
As an easy, quick and cute way to add a touch of light to your manicure, we think this is a great look to try out for the holiday season! So sit back, and let us walk you through how it's done...
Prepare your nails properly as you would do for any manicure by following our easy guide, then give each nail an initial coat of protective base coat.
Wait for the base coat to dry before selecting your chosen shade of metallic or glittering polish! You will now need some washi tape - a less sticky miniature tape which you can easily cut to create the desired shapes you want to paint onto your nails. Cover the rest of each nail in this tape and leave the tip exposed, then paint over your nail with the metallic polish in smooth, steady strokes.
Once your metallic or glittering shade is dry, peel off the washi tape and give your nails a final coat of high-shine top coat to add even more seasonal sparkle! Use a Q-tip dipped in polish remover to remove bits of color from the end to create a gold foil effect.
