Now sometimes my love of DIY even spills over onto my manicure.

So I did what any other 30 something girl would do and I turned to Pinterest for some answers. Which is when I discovered manicurists across the interweb knew this very secret I’m about to tell you…one which will bring back your love of Glitter Nails.

How to Get Perfect Glitter Nails
Here’s What I’m Using…
Don’t forget your favorite base coat and top coat–I’m loving this Essie Gel Top Coat–it gives you the look and wear of a gel polish without the salon price!
First, apply your base coat. Next, shake your glitter polish like you’ve never shaken before…and when you think it’s all mixed up, give it one last shake for good measure! This was an essential step with my glitter polish being that the stars were heavier and settled to the bottom. Now take your makeup sponge and generously apply the glitter polish all over the bottom corner. Immediately dab the loaded sponge directly onto your nails. Repeat for all 10 digits! Finally, let the glitter dry and finish with your top coat.
Tell me I’m not the only one who didn’t know about this…
Can you believe it’s really that easy??! My glitter polish never looked this good! I would always end up with clumpy nails that weren’t ever fully covered and never looked like the glitter in the polish bottle. Problem solved. Have you tried this technique before?? Not gonna lie…I kinda feel like I’m winning at life being that I got 3 compliments on my DIY Glitter Polish at home manicure. Yep…winning I tell ya.
That’s My DOSE of DIY!
