Glitter Week: Round and Drop Shaped Glitter

Another technique that you can try with glitter is applying it one by one on your nails.  Use any base color you'd like, work one nail at a time so that the nail polish is still tacky and the glitter can stick to it.  With a wet orange stick or toothpick pick them up and press slightly.  This technique takes patience, but you can create many beautiful designs like this one and this one.

  2. I think you have done a great job with the green and glitter shapes. Amazing effect, probably time consuming?!
