Bear in mind that any base coat, sparkle polish, and top coat works. Best of all, you can do it at home!

Here's how.

Step 1: Apply a base coat like JINsoon Power Coat ($18, Sephora) or OPI Natural Nail Base Coat ($8, Drugstore.com).

Step 2: Apply color to your nails -- darker colors look very dramatic with this look. JINsoon's Nocturne ($18, Sephora) is a dark gray with metallic black polish. Or, go with a plum like Essie's Sexy Divide ($8.50, Beauty.com). Any deep color will look amazing.

Step 3: Use the tip of the brush to dab JINsoon's Guild ($18, Sephora) from the base of the nail toward the center until you achieve the desired effect. You can keep building up "flecks" to make it more bold. Guild is a shimmery gold-and-white sparkle polish.
