Purple glitter skittle

Hi everyone! Today I’m showing you a fun skittle mani I did using different types of purple glitter.

For the heart, star and diamond-shaped glitter, I again put a thick layer of topcoat down then I placed the glitters using a toothpick coated in top coat to make it tacky.

This was a fun mani but it didn’t last so long before the glitters started coming off. I’m pretty rough on my nails though, so it could probably last a couple of days if you were careful.

Have you tried placing glitter before? Did you manage to get it looking neater than this?
