We love our monthly GLOSSYBOX themes, and our July 'Beauty Treasures' edit (with it's special design treasure chest box!) is up there with our all time favourites!

As we can't get enough of this edit, we thought we'd take it one step further - and turn the gorgeous beach inspired box into NAIL ART! Yes, you heard right... we've got a 'Beauty Treasures' nail tutorial for you!

We tasked Glossy and fab nail design expert Charlotte Openshaw with this incredibly important job, and boy did she deliver!


'Beauty Treasures' Nail Tutorial Step By Step

Want these talons for yourself? Here's how to give this style a go at home...

1. Prep your nails (and your cuticles!)

Start your DIY manicure (and gorgeous nail art!) with some serious prep work. It might seem like a little bit of a bore, but it'll really help your nail art to last! File your nails, push back your cuticles, buff and apply a base coat of polish!

2. Paint your base

Next, paint your nails a pale nude shade. You can also try using builder gel first to allow you to extend your nails to your desired length!

3. Get dotty!

One your base is try, the fun can start! With cool shades of blue and pink, start dabbing little pastel polka dots all over the ends of your nails to mimic the cool effect pictured above.

4. Finished with cuticle oil

Finish your manicure with a final bit of pampering - some cuticle oil! Did you know, there's a fab cuticle oil in our Grazia Best Of Beauty Limited Edition GLOSSYBOX! For only £45, you'll get this incredibly handy nail product, as well as 11 other hardworking beauty essentials, from brands including Illamasqua, Too Faced and Bobbi Brown!

I'm someone who loves getting glammed up, but I feel like I never have enough time. Frequently running between work, the gym and seeing friends means my makeup routine is quick and often touched up on the go. Therefore, beauty products that serve as multi-purpose are perfect for me - a blush that works for cheeks and lips is a must in my makeup bag!
