Smoothing Coat for Glitter

Our Smoothing Coat for Glitter is revolutionary! Teams of scientists worked tirelessly for months developing it! It's a miracle breakthrough!

Actually, none of that is true...it's just a trick I found that really works!

Smoothing Coat for Glitter consists of suspension base and a tiny bit of 99.8% isopropyl alcohol. That's it! We're offering it for $4/bottle, but it's something you can definitely do at home if you're so inclined.

This is not the suspension base we use in our glitter polishes. The smell is stronger, a bit like super glue. It's also much thicker. We tried our normal suspension base and it doesn't work as well to smooth glitter with one coat, I think because it's not as thick.


You can see the tiny bubbles suspended in the above picture--a day after filling the bottle--because it's so thick (it takes two to three days for bubbles to disappear).

Our Smoothing Coat for Glitter dries clear, but slowly. Wait a couple of minutes after your final coat of glitter polish, then apply a thin-to-medium coat.

We don't recommend this as a use-and-go topcoat; it works best under a fast-drying topcoat like Seche Vite or Poshe (both can be found at CVS, Sally Beauty Supply, and on Amazon.com).

We DO recommend waiting 2-3 minutes between the application of Smoothing Coat for Glitter and your preferred topcoat. It just seems to work better this way, maybe because it has a chance to really coat the glitter? Not sure, but I've had better results when I waited a few minutes.

If you have any questions, just leave them in the comments section or email us at info@maya-cosmetics.com. Thank you for looking!
