She took to Instagram to show how to “fill in” in her neutral-colored manicure with a bottle of essie “Top Of Rock” glitter nail polish.

To achieve, she dabbed on the chunky polish along the cuticle towards the base of her manicure and then went back over with a second coat to give it an ombre effect.
