Dance Baby With Full Spectrum

I bring you a lovely manicure with two China Glazes. Dance Baby and Full Spectrum. I was amazed at the formula on Full Spectrum, it was one coat over two coats of Dance Baby and it looks fantastic. I used Seche Vite for the top coat over Dance Baby, and then later after the manicure was set I used Full Spectrum and then topped it off with Poshe. I think I might need a backup bottle of Dance Baby, I’ve worn it about three times this year since I bought it in the spring. This is a previous photo of a manicure with Dance Baby, as I forgot to photograph it before I added the glitter.

Then here it is with Full Spectrum over it. I haven’t tried this with black yet, but with Fall around the corner I will soon.

I also got out to Walmart today and grabbed two boxes of these:

One is for Mother, while the other is all mine! I think they will work great too. They fit just fine, I was worried because I have meaty fingers, but they will do just fine, I’m sure. You cut five cotton pads in half, apply 100% Acetone and then put ½ of one on a fingernail and top it with one of these that will accommodate the cotton pad. You can do all ten fingers, wait five minutes and then all tough glitter polish will be sliding off onto the cotton pads.

I can’t wait to try this, I admit it’s what motivated me to wear glitter again this manicure. I didn’t come up with this, but I sure adore the idea! I saw it on Makeup Alley’s Nail Board from ReesaRN, so a big thank you to her for bringing us a way to remove gorgeous glitters without the need for foil. Happy polishing!


  1. What a great idea! I don't use foil, I think it is a waste of precious metal, so this is a nice alternative.

    1. I never used foil either, for the very same reason. I just felt it was wasteful too. This method worked GREAT for me today! I was amazed at how easily the polish came off! It was awesome! Simple and yet effective! Will be posting about using Elmer's Glue as a peel off base coat for glitters soon too. Have you heard about that yet Jenni Lee?

    2. I haven't heard about using Elmer's glue. I think I like the glue idea better.


Thanks for stopping by and thanks for your feedback!
