The materials I used are Martha Stewart's yellow barite glitter, L'oreal club prive and Essie's top coat no chips ahead. 1. Paint 1 very thin coat of your base color on all nails. 2. Paint second coat of your base color on one finger. 3. Pinch some of glitter in the opposite hand as the finger that has the second coat. 4. Sprinkle the glitter starting at the base of the nail (glitter should be heavy at base and sprinkled at top) 5. Let nails dry and finish with top coat.
