A couple of weeks ago I shared my beauty tricks and tips with you. You can read about them here. Today I am going to share with you some of my nail tips and tricks.
How to apply glitter nail polish?
One way is to do it traditionally. Take the polish and just apply it on nails.
If you want more intense result like you see on the bottle you have to do following.
Take a makeup sponge and make it wet. Squeeze the excessive water out and apply glitter nail polish on it. The sponge will absorb the most of the polish, leaving glitter on the surface.
Then just dab it on your nail. You can do it two-three times until you are happy with the result. After that, apply the top coat and admire the result. When nails are done, just clean the skin around your nails and you are ready to go.
This technique will work with more intensely glittery polishes.
How to take glitter nail polish off?
Yes, we all know that once you put glitter on your nails, it takes more effort to remove than it would take to build a skyscraper.
If you don’t have the time or desire to use that much energy to get the glitter off, you can do the following:
Apply any nail polish on the glitter, let it sit for five-seven seconds, and remove it as you usually would. The additional nail polish helps to melt the glitter and it will come off better.
Apply top coat on the edge of your nails
This will help keep the nail polish decent for a longer time. It will also help to prevent chipping.
S.O.S. nail polish remover
If there is a moment when you have to take your nail polish off right then and there, this trick might come handy.
All you need is a nail polish. It doesn’t matter what kind or what colour the nail polish is. Just apply it on the nails and rub/pull it off with a dry cotton pad. The nail polish will melt the lacquer on your nails, which makes possible to remove varnish a layer by layer.
It isn’t the most healthy or wallet friendly method to remove nail polish but desperate times call for desperate measures.
