Found this through a friend, Elizabeth Maurer, here is the original link to photographer Jonna Pohjalainen--wouldn't that be something to come upon this on a walk! Love it! Still love the pencil in all its various sizes and shapes! It's an ingenious tool.
You apply a clear coat of polish to the nails, dip the nail into the glitter pot, make sure the glitter covers the whole nail, carefully remove it from the pot, then wipe off any excess. The result is gorgeous. It’s a matte glitter finish unlike conventional glitter nail polish.
