Chunky glitter polish can make a beautiful egg, but since each tack is so small it can be hard to get glitter from your brush onto the tack.
I've been wanting to use this Frozen inspired polish from Five Below. This is Elsa.
Since this is a clear-base polish, I started by painting my tacks with a base coat. Some of my tacks will be blue and the others white.
One coat didn't completely hide the silver of the tacks. So I did one more coat.
I let the tacks dry awhile so I wouldn't smudge the base coat when placing my glitter.
Next I painted the glitter polish directly onto a makeup sponge. This soaks up the extra clear polish so you can put more glitter on the tack than painting the tack directly.
Once the glitter is on the sponge, lightly dab it into the tacks.
I followed up the sponge with a light coat of the polish with the brush to get a nice coating over th glitter then followed up with a top coat.
Finally, I assembled it on a styrofoam ball to make an ornament.
