Like most people, I have a love/hate relationship with glitter nail polish. On the one hand I love it, because it turns my nails into sparkly disco balls, but on the other, it can be time-consuming and irritating AF.
The shiny rainbow flecks never fail to draw me in, the time and effort it takes to apply a bazillion coats of glitter, kills ALL the fun. Most of the time I'm left with patchy clumps of sparkle sporadically placed across each nail. Cute, huh? 😑
Well guess what? This mani 'mare might actually be over. Because beauty vlogger, Kelli Marissa, has come up with a clever way to ensure a flawless glitter finish with zero patchiness.
Let me break it down for you...
Step one: Apply a clear base coat.
Step two: Kelli uses 'liquid latex' to paint around the edges of her nail, but the trick works just as well with PVA glue.
Step three: Dab a glitter nail polish on to the corner of a small sponge.
Step four: PAT the glitter onto your nail using the sponge. Apply it in layers to build up a fully opaque coverage.
Step five: Finish with a topcoat.
Et voila! No more patchy manis.
