Put Some Glitter On It

I need to do more layering.  I realized that I have two bins of glitters/topcoats and hardly ever use them.  Maybe a topcoat week is in order.
I wanted to bling out my Secret Rendezvous a bit and found this NYX  Starry Silver Glitter top coat that went perfectly with it's little lavender and blue hex's in a holo silver glitter base.  I just let the hex's lie where they would rather than trying to place them myelf. This is two coats.

 I like glitter polishes once they've sat a bit, especially when they have larger bits in them. I know a lot of people swear by the toothpick and fish method, but I think the thicker consistency  makes it a lot easier to get get the bits on the brush and thereby to your nail.  Any goopyness can easily be smoothed out with a nice top coat.
How about you?  Do you have any tricks for getting your glitter polishes on?

Thanks so much for stopping by and reading and I love getting your comments.  Until next time, have a lovely day!


  1. Hi! I'm here to tell you that I sent you an award here:

    I hope you enjoy it!!


  2. I just chuck the gliirt one and add TC till it's smooth. I've never once placed the glitter bits where I want them.
    This looks lovely on you.

  3. Love your glittery goodness! I usually don't have problems putting glitter polish on but rather taking the glitter off :)

  5. This is a great combo! I can't say I've searched for tricks to put glitter polish ON... but I've certainly spent lots of time trying to get it OFF :)

  6. DIG. I want to try and franken my own dupe of glitter in the Air. This kind of reminds me of it. :) I have to get my hands on some hex glitters. :)


I really do appreciate your comments and I try to respond to all of them either directly via email or here in the comments section if you're set to "no reply".
