There are two different ways to mix and apply glitter with your acrylic powder:
- The most common way is to mix in an empty cosmetic jar, 3 parts acrylic powder to 1 part Glitties glitter powder. Shake very well. For more glitter coverage, you can mix 2 parts acrylic to 1 part glitter powder, but just remember that the more glitter powder added will weaken the acrylic’s strength. Be sure to cap the glitter/acrylic layer with clear acrylic layer before filing.
- Another way to apply Glitties glitter with your acrylic powder is to make a acrylic ball on the end of your brush like normally, but before you apply it to the nail, dip it into the glitter so that the glitter coats one side of the ball. Then when you place it on the nail, be sure to place it glitter side up. The side that is touching the nail does not have the glitter. Then press it out like a normal acrylic ball.
