As gorgeous as glitter nail polish looks, applying it (never mind removing it!) can be a real challenge. So much so that it’s almost not worth doing it at all (ALMOST). The good news is that we have a beauty hack that will make applying your favourite glitter polish a cinch. Here we go…
Start by applying a base coat as usual. We love the long-lasting, ultra-smooth Essie First Base Base Coat.
Apply liquid latex around each nail. This will stop you from getting polish anywhere other than where it’s supposed to go.
Coat a traditional makeup sponge in your glitter nail polish. The luxuriously sparkly Essie Luxeffects Collection Nail Polish in Glow Your Own Way is amazing – and the golden colour is so in right now.
Daub the sponge onto each nail to apply the polish. Due to the fact that the sponge soaks up a lot of the polish itself, the glitter goes on seamlessly and ensures fuller coverage.
