Glitter Nail Polish Is All You Need to Save Your Overgrown Gel Manicure

Curated via Twitter from Allure’s twitter account….

Smalley shared with her 173,000 followers that she first sharpened up her nails with a file and then filled in the unpolished area above the cuticles using Essie Top of the Rock, a beautiful, chunky gold glitter. "I just wanted to share with my followers some light-hearted content to solve a problem that will make them feel better about the current situation, and it'll also kill some time," Smalley said when I reached out to her.

The stylist actually took to her Instagram Stories months ago to share that she forgot to pre-book her manicure appointment and had to film a video for work — she's a brand storyteller for Joico — so she filled in the unpainted area of her nails with a glitter polish.

Manicurist Holly Falcone agrees. "I think filling in the growth is a great idea when you can't get a manicure," she tells Allure. "Glitter is the best because it's the densest and you can basically 'spackle' the outgrowth, especially for something thicker, like a gel manicure.
