Hi all, long time no see, if you remember me lol.

Ok so i have bought some glitter acrylic powder, Ive tried this out on one of my clients, but the problem I have is when I come to blend the acrylic it is removing the glitter, and leaving a chalky finish ?

Can you explain to me how I use this glitter stuff, its so annoying, ive even tried doing 1 layer of clear acrylic, then glitter then clear again and its still doing it ? help pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :cry:

Oh and Im using Naio products.

Yeah maybe crap but I get along fine usually :rolleyes:

I use young nails glitters as they are fabaroonie :green:
I mix them 2 parts clear to one part glitter then i add a layer of clear over that so that the clear is encapsulated and not filed into. They also do coloured & metallic core powders that dont need mixing!!!:green:
Also i finally coat the finished nail with a product called finish it is a top coat sealer that does not have to be wiped after uv this brings the glitter out amazing:green:xxx
Hope this helps Have Fun Joxx:hug:

I also use and do the same a blackjack :hug: but I use 3 parts clear to 1 part glitter to stop it moving about so much.

Some times it is just down to getting the correct ratio for you

Good luck
