Blinged-out metallic nails can be seen everywhere, from celebrities to the fashion elite. Here's a step by step tutorial for getting this star-studded manicure.

Step 1: Start with clean bare nails and make sure to trim and file your tips to get the freshest looking mani.

Step 2: Apply one coat of polish in a solid silver tone. I use Nicole by OPI in "Positive Energy". I find this one works best as a basecoat since it gives optimal shine to your nails.

Step 3: Complete the look by applying two coats of clear silver glitter nailpolish. Most glitter polishes have a built in topcoat, so there's no need to use one. I bought mine from Forever 21, but I also suggest using the new Nicole by OPI, "Make U Smile" from the Justin Bieber collection.

Et voila! You've got yourself a star-studded manicure! And the final touch? Layer on bulky blinged-out silver rings and watch the heads turn!
