The glitter in this is awesome! the good part is that it's very thin, and not gritty at all (like regular glitter nail polish), but the downside is that, it is so thin, that it is not too easy to apply. I broke the first couple of appliques trying to get it right, but then it was all good. I suggest trying on one nail first with a size that you know you will not use, in case it breaks. But this is what makes them so clean looking, the fact that they are so delicate. The Incoco sets also come with two colorless appliques to practice, which is why I love them.
