Show Off Your Nail Art Flare with a Glitter Finish

Up the ante with JulieG Nails Textured Nail Color  ($3.99,, which shows your flare for out-of-the-box personal styling. If you’ve only used nail lacquers that leave a smooth finish, get ready because you won’t get that here! The end result is a nail that looks like a nubby towel got to it before it could dry. But guess what? That’s the look you’re going for. To get the full effect, the suggested application procedure is to not use a base or top coat. Use thin coats and apply one to three coats for full coverage.  Allow each layer to dry completely in between layers for full textured effect, which may take up to 10 minutes to dry completely matte.

Nail Art Advice from Maisie Dunbar

Glittered nails are gorgeous to look at, but the removal phase is an absolute beast of a chore! If the chore of removing said glitter is hemming up your adventurous side, then take the advice of celebrity nail artist Maisie Dunbar, whose clients include Fantasia, Mary Mary, Guns and Roses, Chaka Khan, and Sharon Osborne – soak a cotton ball with 100% acetone and place on each nail for about 10-20 seconds and remove.

Maisie offers two tips for getting a great glitter nail application every time:

  • Tip 1: For best results for glitter nails use a base color very close to color of glitter and one – 2 coats if glitter polish, otherwise for full coverage and true glitter appearance you will need 3 coats of glitter.
  • Tip 2: Another option is to use dust glitter over polish while sticky and apply top top. If using this method apply one hand at a time.
