Oh what a realization moment dawn upon me when I saw the dabbing technique. No wonder it was so hard getting those glitters on my nails those days. I was probably doing it wrong! Perhaps not wrong, just not the best way it could be done. Here's one tutorial I find very useful regarding the dabbing technique:
wait, did any of you actually know of this method and no one told me? whyyyy?? *sobs*
Well, this method to some of you could be common sense. To those of you who experience the same as me, thou shalt also participate in the moment of realization that I did when I saw this demonstration. Hahaha!(okay sorry, cold joke)
Anyway, so I applied the dabbing method to one of my previously did combination to show the contrast between using the dabbing method and the brushing on method.
you may see more view of the brushed on method here
Yeap, so can you see the difference? If its not clear enough below here's a different angle of the one done with dabbing method so you can see just how much more glitters are there in just 1 application.
And this is not all that I have to share today. Other than the dabbed method, there's also the DIY peel off base coat for glitters! No more foil methods for me! No more fussy removal of Glitters! I won't speak more of this method though. You can read all about them from the posts posted by Lab Muffin and Pretty Purple Polish. Both of them did a great job in helping readers/polish enthusiast in finding out alternatives to glitter polish removals! Huge thanks to the both of you!
I've did a little test on this post too but I didn't have it on for a long time (lack of patience) I've leave on for about 6 hours I guess which includes hands washing and a shower together with hair wash. lol. Before my hands itch to peel them off.
Items used :
