The basic technique for adding glitter to your nail art can be approached in two ways:

1. Mix Art Glitter with Clear Acrylic Powder*. A good starting ratio is 2 parts acrylic to 1 part glitter, but you can go as high as 50/50. (The more glitter you use the better your coverage, however the acrylic's strength will weaken as well.) Then apply a "clear cap" before filing.

2. Art Glitter and Gels*. Can be applied in two ways:
A. Mix glitter with nail gel. Dip brush into mixture and brush the mixture onto the nail in desired shape or pattern. Cure, apply top coat of gel and cure.
B. Apply nail gel on nail only where you want to apply glitter. Dust the nail with glitter and lightly shake to remove excess. Use a small implement to remove any glitter that you don’t want. Cure, apply top coat of gel and cure.

The newest trend in glitter and gels is "Glitter Toes"!
Prep nail bed, apply base gel and leave tacky, dust with glitter, blow off any unwanted glitter from the skin with a can of compressed air, cure, apply top coat of gel and cure. Also known as "Rock Star Toes".

All polyester glitter is cosmetically safe for wearing on skin. A few ultrafine opaque colors have a mix of metallic glitter in them and are not skin safe or solvent resistant. Click HERE for a list of glitter colors that are NOT cosmetic grade. All other polyester Ultrafine, PearlChunky and Microfine glitter are safe.
***Vintage Glass Glitter and Gala Glitz are made from real glass. Do Not use for body applications; including nails (acrylic nails are acceptable),
cosmetics and wearable applications.***
