This is one of the products that I purchased in the Philippines but I’ve never really used it. I tried it out just after I purchased it but it didn’t really work that well, I didn’t have any of my nail tools with me on vacation so I just removed it.
Yesterday I felt inspired and thought let me give it another go. I buffed and filed and got my nails all clean. The instructions just said to paint your nails and dip them into the glitter pot, wait 5 minutes to dry and then brush off the lose glitter with the enclosed brush (Which I lost, not surprise there haha) Previously what I did was I painted all the nails on one hand and then dipped it, this time I painted and dipped one at a time. They came out looking pretty nice but I would however suggest to do a second coat before dipping to get the enamel evenly opaque.
I sealed it with a top coat, which I thought would help, the previous time all the glitters fell off, but oh my, not even 2 hours later, after washing my hands the polish started peeling off, the top coat, with the glitter and some of the enamel. I was so disappointed, it looked so pretty, I am not sure if maybe my top coat and the BYS may not be compatible or if I need to include a base coat, but it shouldn’t be this hard to apply nail polish wanting it to last for more than a couple of hours. I will re try it soon and then do an updated post on the results, what do they always say? 3rd Time’s the charm ?
Update: I tried the glitter with another nail polish brand, same result, it lasted a little longer but it peeled off again so it must be the glitter that causes this to happen *sad face*
