A sponge glitter gradient never fails me! I tried a few different things before I decided to go with a fail safe glitter gradient mani. My base was multiple coats of Claire's Evergreen. I brushed and sponged on Icing Manic Monday (dark green) at the base of my nail - like a ruffian manicure, then applied Sinful Call You Later over the area where the two polish's met.
Thankfully I was able to get some outdoor sunshine photos today ~ but seem to be experiencing technical difficulties with blogger, hopefully everything works out♥
w/ Claire's Evergreen
w/ Sinful Colors Call You Later
brushed on in ruffian shape - then sponged over, 1 coat of glitter, 2 coats of glitter
glitter particles are tough to get off my cuticles - even with an acetone clean up
this was my Irish Meadow mani from the other day.... I removed the design from my ring nail and then tried water marbling - FAIL!!!!! I have done some pretty marbling in the past, but this did not work, so then I tried a patchwork mani ( a la chloe nails) and that didn't work either. so I went with the safe glitter gradient - looks good every time
.... and a 'syrup' mani fail. I know it is supposed to be a sheer polish that is used for a syrup/graduated manicure, but this is waaaaaaay too sheer. it is a pretty colour, but needs alot of coats to opacity. I will layer this over an opaque base polish.
