How To Apply Glitter Polish

How To Apply Glitter Polish
Below is a technique to get max glitter payout if you’re not getting the glitter coverage you want from your glitter polishes.
1. Apply a base coat
2. Apply a thin coat of your glitter polish & allow to completely dry.
3. If you use a latex barrier to minimize clean up you’ll want to use it now. If not, that’s fine too you may have a little more work to do to clean up your cuticles and skin around your nails. Allow latex barrier to completely dry.
4. Using a makeup sponge apply a generous coat of your glitter polish to the wide end.
5. Pat the sponge onto your nail, pressing the glitter into any bare area of your nail. Allow to dry.
6. Repeat steps 4 & 5 until desired effect is achieved.
7. If using a latex barrier remove now by carefully pulling it off starting at one end.
9. Clean up any polish that got onto your skin and around your cuticles using a cleanup brush or other small brush dipped in acetone. Leaving a small gap of bare nail between your polish and your cuticle gives a cleaner, more professional look.
8. Apply a top coat. If you dislike the bumpiness created by glitter you may need to apply 2-3 coats of top coat.
