How to Paint Fingernails With Glitter Polish
Scrub your nails thoroughly. Clean nails hold polish better and have a smooth, professional appearance.
File the tips. You can create a rounded or a squared-off tip depending on your preference. While you are filing, lightly pass the file across the tops of your nails so that they will hold the polish better.
Push back your cuticles. Use the orange stick to push back cuticles and expose as much of the nail as possible.
Apply two coats of the solid color nail polish. This will provide a background for your glitter. These coats should be thin, but even, and you should let them dry completely before moving on to the next step.
Apply one to three coats of glitter polish. These coats should be thin but even. Allow them to dry completely between applications. When your nails sparkle enough to suit you, move on to the next step.
Finish with one layer of the clear nail polish. This layer will hold the glitter in place and keep your nails smooth and chip-free. Make sure that it is completely dry before doing any activities with your hands.
