Step 2. Cookie cutters

Using the medium paint brush, paint the shapes of five different cookies, one on each nail. Let the nails dry completely (important so the glitter doesn't stick!). Use quick dry drops if you want to speed up the process.

Step 3. Icing and sparkle

Using the medium brush, paint a different color polish on each cookie, much like how you would frost a sugar cookie. Work one nail at a time. While the color is wet, sprinkle the clear glitter over the design and shake off the excess. Repeat for each nail. Once your nails are dry, lightly brush off excess glitter.
