Hi girls a clients wants glitter nails tomorrow can I do this a layer of base coat 2 layers of color then add the glitter to the sticky layer then a top coat does this sound right and could the top coat crack because of the glitter ?
You might find you need 2 coats of top coat as the glitter can be rough. I sometimes only use 1 coat if colour if the glitter matches it and gives good coverage. I apply it to the cured colour layer but I use shellac so gel may be different

Hi I do base, 2 coats of colour then glitter, one layer of top coat and after curing just give the glitter fingers a light buff until smooth, wipe with cleanse then another top coat. Works for me and they are smooth and never catch :) xx
