DIY Mixing Glitter Ratios-Add Bling to Polish, Acrylic and Gel


“I am so excited to demonstrate for you my “Jewelry Box” Collection and I have 4 beautiful Crystal Holographic Dazzle Rocks glitters for you: Micro Loose Diamonds- Crystal Holographic Dazzle Rocks, Small Loose Diamonds- Crystal Holographic Dazzle Rocks, Medium Loose Diamonds- Crystal Holographic Dazzle Rocks and Large Loose Diamonds- Crystal Holographic Dazzle Rocks. The loose diamonds are made in the USA, and are solvent resistant so they can be used to add bling to every type of nail product; polish, acrylic and gel. Today’s video is a DIY to show what ratios are used when mixing glitter and which glitters look the best in different products.”


Pointers when adding glitter to products:

  • • The darker and/or more opaque the color is, the smaller the glitter
  • • The lighter and/or more translucent, the bigger the glitter
  • • When mixing Acrylic, a 3 to 1 ratio is the basic (3 parts acrylic 1 part glitter)
  • • When mixing Polish and Glitter 10% by weight or about 5 parts product to one part glitter

NOTE: The smaller the glitter the less you need and the larger the glitter the more you need
