Glitter Nails - Pressing Glitter Into The Tacky Layer Of Gel Polish
Holographic Glitter 004 & Metallic Glitter 008
Tip 1: When working with glitter its a good idea to put some paper towel down under the hand to catch the excess glitter and save on mess.
Tip 2: When using top coat over your glitter, always wipe your brush before putting it back into the bottle to avoid getting glitter all through it! Or have a separate top coat you use just for glitter application.
To create the best tacky layer for glitter application, cure your second gel polish colour coat for half of the recommended curing time.
Using a small brush, pick up small amounts of the glitter and sprinkle it onto the nail until it is fully covered. You may need to lightly press it into the nail with the brush so that its secured into the tacky layer.
With a larger brush, brush away the excess.
Finish with 2 coats of your preferred top coat.
