When using glitter powders to use in zone 1 (I'll ease myself in gently!!) do you apply the glitter powder really thin, let cure and then create the structure of the nail on top of this using say clear in zone 1 and pink in 2 and 3?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Cathie: as i understand it (which isnt much, lol!) you mix the glitter in the clear powder, apply to the tip, allow to cure then add whatever you want in zone 2 and 3 but you also need to apply clear over the top of the glitter mix otherwise it will come away when you buff it - hope this makes sense and helps a bit!

Hi
It depends on what products you are using....

1) If you mix a fine glitter with a clear or 'normal' powder, you will definitely need a coat of clear/pink over the top so you don't buff all the colour off the glitter.

or

2) I recently treated myself to the Creative Metro's powders, which are holographic, and the glitter in those doesn't seem to lose it's colour when you buff them down - so I think it is really dependant on your products. (That or I've suddenly got much better at application!!! lol)

Thanks ladies, found an old post by Antony which confirmed for an EZ Flow Walk of Fame glittery tip, do it thin and cap with clear.

The clear used to cap the nails not only strengthens them, but makes the color "pop" and the glitter look more 3-D

Watched the EZ Flow DVD and it shows some great stuff with glitter tips, and colour blending etc, its quite amazing what you can do when you know how.

Did Carole manage to get her Ez Flow DVD working yet?

I have to say, it's the best instructional DVD/Video etc., that I've ever seen - it's filmed so close to the nail and just so clear. Well done Ez Flow!
