OMG this was the worst challenge day for me to complete. I mean it's just a gradient, but I had the hardest time. I did a complete mani using a gradient set and it looked like crap. Then I took it off and did another gradient (same one you're about to see) but it wouldn't cooperate so I took it off and tried again. All was well from there. I guess the third time's a charm, right?
This is the mani that gave me so much trouble. UNNECESSARY! Anyway I do love how it eventually turned out. Glitter gradients are always so fun and pretty. I think this one looks like princess nails. I used two coats of my favorite pink polish, OPI Sweet Memories. I don't even like pink and I can't get enough of this one. IDK man. It's definitely a jelly which makes it even better and yes it shows the whites of my nails, but if you know me, you know I kinda like that. It's like cleavage for your nails. lol
After the pink was dry I dabbed on L.A.Colors Color Craze Sparkling Diamond (which you say layered over my yellow mani) starting at the cuticle and dragging it about half way up the nail. Then I added Ulta Starstruck which is an amazing silver holo glitter. It doesn't take much to make an impact. I only used a light touch though because it's very dense and I didn't want to overwhelm the mani.
Again I love how this mani turned out. I will definitely be doing it again soon after the challenge is over. What's your take on glitter gradients? Let me know in the comments below.
