I love the occasional glitter manicure, but when it's time to change to something more subtle, I seem to use up so much nail polish remover trying to get all the little bits off. A good way to avoid that is by painting a coat of white glue (like Elmer's) on the nails as a base coat. Allow it to dry, then paint on the glitter. When you're ready for a colour change, just peel the glue and glitter off in one go. It's non-toxic, fast, and easy!

Glitter nail polish always looks so gorgeous in the bottle but when you swipe it on, it doesn't look anything like what's in the bottle! You only get a few pieces of the glitter and a whole lot of clear goo. Painting multiple coats on still doesn't give you enough glitter but makes your polish so thick.


The trick is to use a cheap little makeup sponge. Just drop some onto the sponge, then dab the sponge onto your nails. Heavy glitter, light clear polish. Perfect! You can see the difference between using the nail polish brush and the sponge between my two hands.
