How to: EcoStardust nail looks

We can’t get enough of eco-conscious glitter brand EcoStardust. As well as being biodegradable, vegan-friendly and cruelty-free, these gorgeous nail and cosmetic glitters are also available in a variety of bold shades, allowing you to create on-trend, guilt-free nail and make-up looks for your clients.

Take a look at some of our favourite EcoStardust manicures below and find out how you can recreate these looks.

Pair with acrylic

This glitzy blue mani was created using shade Sea Breeze from the EcoStardust range. This signature blend of chunky glitters includes shades of turquoise, emerald and silver to create a beautiful, sea-inspired finish.

The glitter was simply added to acrylic powder then applied to nails as an overlay by nail tech Jenna Haughian. The overlay was then buffed, revealing a super shiny, glittery finish. Encasing the glitter particles in the acrylic ensures long-lasting wear and is a great way to enhance a simple acrylic overlay.

Layer over a gel polish


How gorgeous is this pretty purple nail look? Glitter in shade Blossom was used to enhance this simple yet statement gel colour, adding something extra to accent nails. The glitter, which combines shades of purple, pink and gold, was gently patted onto the uncured gel polish. This was then cured and two coats of gel top coat were added to ensure long-lasting wear and shine.

Team with CND™Shellac™

It doesn’t get much better than ombré and glitter! Jo from award-winning mobile nail technician team French and Drench created these sophisticated ombré nail looks using CND™Shellac™ gel polishes. She then layered the glitters on the tips of the nails to create this on-trend ombré finish.

“The glitters are great to work with,” said Jo, “The chunky ones can be slightly more difficult to work with on gel polishes so may be better for enhancements.

“I think the chunkier glitters would look great over some nail art.”
