I’m not a big of fan of glitter. Shimmer yes, I adore it, but glitter is a different story. It looks great on some people if done right but personally I don’t like to sparkle that much and I also find glitter hard to control. The only exception is glitter on the nails. I know glitter nail polish is a pain to remove but I love how it looks and it is also fun to make. Here’s how:
Add some glitter to your favourite shades
Sometimes, I like to add a glittery touch to my favourite nail polish shades. I start by applying the polish (you can choose any shade you want, even a transparent one) to my nails and, while it is still wet, I add the glitter with a small brush. I wait for my nails to dry and then I apply a layer of top coat to seal in the glitter and add some shine. And voilà, you’re wearing your own unique glitter polish. 🙂
How to make your own glitter nail polish
However, sometimes I buy some polishes that look beautiful in the bottle but are only meh on the nails. I know I’ll never wear them but I don’t wanna throw away a new bottle of good, although boring, polish, so I simply add the glitter inside the bottle to get a cool new shade. For this, you need your nail polish bottle obviously, a stiff piece of paper and tape. Fold the paper into a funnel shape and apply tape to hold it in place. Now you can pour the fine glitter in a little at a time until you get the desired effect. Put the polish brush back in and shake well so that the glitters will distribute evenly and everywhere in the bottle.
What do you think of glitter polish? Love it? Hate it? Have you ever tried making your own?
