1. Prep your nails for a manicure, I like to make sure my nails are clean and remove any cuticles. Apply one layer of base coat. I’ve used Seche’s Rebuild.

2. Place your glitter into a small bowl, make sure there is plenty in the bowl. Apply a coat of base coat, one nail at a time.

3. Place each nail into the glitter for a few seconds. Move the nail around a little bit to make sure you get good glitter coverage. Alternatively place your nail over a small bowl and pour the glitter over it.


4. Wait for the polish with glitter to dry for a minute or so, then clean the sides of your finger of the excess glitter. Repeat until all fingers are covered in beautiful glitter.

    1. Hey Maggie! These were simple to remove!
      I feel that with glitter polishes a good base coat is what counts the most. If you apply a good, thick layer of it and make sure it dries properly before apply any glitter or glitter polish then it’ll come off a lot easier than not xx

    2. an easy way to remove glitter polishes that are stubborn – use an acetone based nail polish remover on a cotton pad or cotton ball and wrap it onto your nail and wrap tin foil around it to hold it in place. like a tin foil cap over your finger! let it stay for a few mins and then pull it all off while applying pressure to your nail and the glitter should all (or almost all) come off nice and easily
