When I received the new China Glaze Surprise! collection I knew I had to do some glitter placement. Glitter placement used to be my favorite thing to do before I started devoting myself like crazy to hand painted nail art. What I love about it is that its so easy to do (though time consuming) yet it looks so advanced! Great for a beginner in nail art.
I first painted my nails with 2 coats of China Glaze At Vase Value from their new City Flourish collection. I had somewhat of a difficult time with application but once I figured it out it went on fine. It came out slightly streaky, so I painted my first coat thin and even, then the second coat I did thicker, worked like a charm! 🙂
The glitters from the Surprise! collection work AMAZING for glitter placement. They each have a variety of colors so they are super fun. This particular glitter is Glitter Up. For glitter placement I blobbed out the glitter polish on a piece of foil, then picked up the glitters one by one and placed them on the nail. Since they are in a clear polish that adhered them to the nail, but you can also dip them in a top coat.
I let the glitters set for a minute to dry and then added on some top coat.
Have you tried the glitter placement technique before?
