How to Apply Glitter Nail Polish

You've Been Applying Glitter Polish All Wrong

Glitter polish gives off the sparkle beauty junkies love, but is a pain to apply. It usually requires multiple coats and comes out streaky and thick.

YouTube vlogger kellimarissa explained how to solve those common problems with a clever technique. Instead of applying the glitter with the bottle's included brush, she suggests painting the varnish onto a makeup sponge and pressing it onto the nail. The sponge absorbs the excess liquid, allowing you to dab on the sparkles evenly, resulting in an opaque application in one layer.
