Glitter Celebration

Step-by-step by Laurie Ivins, Profiles Hair Design, Sandpoint, Idaho

1. Apply gel base coat. Do not cure. Dip tip into your client’s choice of glitter. Using a dab of glitter on a brush, gently feather the glitter on the nail. Cure two to three minutes.

2. Apply clear gel over the entire nail. Sprinkle it with confetti. Cure. Add another coat of clear gel to encase. Cure. Remove tacky layer

3. Using a 180-grit sponge or buffer board, buff the nail smooth. Apply non-tacky UV gel top coat and cure.
