How to Apply Glitter Nail Paint?
Wipe off Any Remaining Nail Paint
The first step is to clean the nails before painting them. You can swipe a cotton ball soaked in nail polish remover and clean any leftover nail paint, oil, or dirt accumulated around the edges of the nail. The liquid nail polish remover is an effective product that prepares the nails by deep cleaning, softening, and removing all the dust and grease settled in the nail bed. Cleaning the nail bed before applying a base coat or nail color gives an even manicure and also leaves behind an ultimate shine and glossy finish.
Start Applying Base Coat
As the name says it all, a base coat protects the nails from any kind of damage. A lot of people think applying a basecoat is not required, but it is extremely important to put it on the bare nails to extend the span of nail paint and also ensure that nails don’t get chipped. Prep your nails by filing them first and then applying the base coat. Before you begin using Glitter Nail Paint, using this base product will work to retain the moisture and prevent the nails from breaking and prevents nail paint from getting stained.
Use a Make-up Sponge to Dab Nail Paint
After applying the base coat, the simplest way to create a show-stopping glitter DIY manicure is by applying the nail paint using a make-up sponge. Pick any unused or clean make-up sponge and apply nail paint on its tip. Now dab the nail paint using the sponge all over the nail till it’s fully covered with glitters. The idea behind using this hack is that texture of the make-up sponge will absorb the liquid color and leave a seamless glitter coat on the nails.
