Calling all glitter bugs: This nifty trick makes your glitter nail polish application a breeze

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…

 

Step 1

Start by applying a base coat as usual. We love the long-lasting, ultra-smooth Essie First Base Base Coat.

Step 2

Apply liquid latex around each nail. This will stop you from getting polish anywhere other than where it’s supposed to go.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

Finish off with a top coat to keep all of that gorgeous glitter in place and to avoid chipping. #NailedIt
