Hi,
I find the best thing to do is firstly apply Shellac base coat and cure as normal. The apply one coat of a pale pink or sheer colour and do not cure. Sprinkle the glitter onto this as it is still sticky and clean up edges with an orange stick dipped in acetone or scrub fresh. Then cure for 2 minutes. Once cured, apply top coat and cure again for 2 mins. Then remove dispersion layer and you're done!

I prefer to use one coat of colour similar to my glitter then cure. I then press the glitter into the tacky layer of the colour coat (apply with a brush for foil look, sprinkle and press for sparkly look). Brush excess glitter off the nails, apply clearly pink to seal the glitter, meaning I don't get glitter in my topcoat. Cure the clearly pink, then topcoat and cure.

Beautiful smooth results every time.

I use Shellac and Bo and find that the brush method is less messy. I tend to use a similar coloured gel/shellac polish underneath.
