So you know when you want to apply glitter polish, and the glitter stays in the bottle so all you get is clear polish on your nails?

Revlon nail expert Leeanne Colley, owner of Tips Nail Bar & Spa in Toronto, has a tip for that:

Instead of shaking your bottle of glitter polish -- say, the new holiday shade Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Glitz & Glam ($6.50) -- hold it upside down and roll it back and forth between your hands. "The glitter will collect in the top of the bottle so that when you flip it back over, then withdraw the brush, you can sweep glitter particles from the bottle neck to the nail."

You're welcome.
