Glitter Gradient with Essie Set in Stones

Sunday, May 26, 2013

Hello everyone! This is another really simple nail art design I have to show. I wear this a lot too since its really easy to create. Its the ever so simple glitter gradient! All I do is concentrate the majority of the glitter on the tips of my nails and fade it upwards halfway on my nails. It adds a nice sparkle to any manicure your wearing and you can select any color combinations to wear with it too.

I used Essie Set in Stones which has a mixture of various size silver hexagon glitters in a clear base. This is my only all silver glitter in my collection and I love it! Formula and application was good. I added one full coat on my ring finger just to show how the glitter looks as an accent nail. I layered this over American Apparel Echo Park. I then topped it all off with my OPI Top Coat.

Notice anything different with my pictures? Yes, I finally learned how to watermark my photos in that curved text shape. Its all thanks to Kayla from Nails by Kayla Shevonne's tutorial she did here. I ran into a few issues when I was testing it out but I got it all figured out in the end. What do you think?

I got a few compliments from customers at work with this manicure on so that made me really happy. Have you tried the glitter gradient manicure?

  7. This is a really great combination. I never paid much attention to all those Essie Luxeffects polishes but this one looks really great on top of that gray.
