Create Custom Glitter Mixes With Tech Gel Glitter Base

by NAILS Staff | March 20, 2019

NSI’s Tech Gel Glitter Base can be used for a variety of nail art purposes, including custom glitter mixes, candy balls, blooming gel, and more. To create a custom glitter mix:

1. Choose one color of Secrets Sparkles or mix different shades to customize. Be sure to mix well.
2. Use an opaque jar when mixing in your Tech Gel Glitter Base. Squeeze the product into the jar, keeping a ratio of gel to glitter of at least 2:1 to ensure there is enough gel for it to cure.
3. Using a brush or metal tool, mix the gel into the glitter until it’s evenly distributed. Now you have a custom glitter gel.
4. Using a #5 Touch Tip Kolinsky Brush, gather a small amount of gel on your brush. Apply in polish-style strokes to the nail. Cure for 30 seconds in an LED lamp or two minutes in a UV lamp. Apply Essential Seal and cure for 30 seconds in LED or two minutes in UV. Remove the tacky layer with a nail wipe saturated in cleanser.
