Here is what I did and how I did it.
Step 1: Choose a base color and then a glitter polish that has a decent size circle, square, or hexagonal shaped glitter inside. Make sure the two polishes compliment each other. (For this how to I chose Zoya Blu and OPI Polka.com)
Step 2: Have a piece of wax paper or a glass plate handy that you can place some of the glitter polish onto.
Step 3: Paint your nail the base color.
Step 4: Paint some of the glitter onto the wax paper or plate as shown in the picture below. Just paint a small spot. The polish dries up quickly when you paint it that thin, so you will need to paint more spots as you move on. Since the coats are thin, you don't waste much polish.
Step 5: HAVE A TON OF PATIENCE AND A STEADY HAND!!! Using a toothpick or orange stick place glitters on your accent finger covering your entire nail in a pattern you desire. Since Polka.com has pink, teal, and purple glitters, I did pink alternated with random purple and teal.
Step 6: On the other nails, create a French tip look using two rows of the glitters.

I found the faster I went and the less I focused on the glitters, the easier it seemed. Now, I think I will wait for my larger glitters from Born Pretty Store! LOL! What do you think? Will you try this method?
