Silver and Blue Reverse Glitter Gradient

Monday, July 21, 2014

Here's my last manicure for The Nail Challenge Collaborative. The theme for this month was to recreate your first four nail art designs. This is a simple reverse glitter gradient. I went with a neutral color scheme for the nails this time around and a glitter I don't usually use in a gradient too.

I used OPI Stranger Tides on all the nails. For the reverse glitter gradient, I used OPI Save Me. Finished with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat.

I'm not a big fan of bar glitters but surprisingly, I like OPI Save Me a lot. I think its because I'm liking how the silver, blue, and holographic bar glitters look together. What do you think?

  1. This is super pretty! I have never actually tried a reverse glitter gradient but I like the look a lot. Stranger Tides is such a cool color, too.

    1. Thank you! You should give it a try then. Its just a different spin on the traditional glitter gradient nails and just as easy to create too.

  6. I really like the way these came out! I love the neutral colors Stranger Tides is beautiful! I don't normally like bar glitter either but I think this glitter looks nicer than most bar glitter because they are shorter and smaller :)

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I do think because the bar glitter in here is shorter, I like it a lot more too.

    1. I'm sure you can do it right. For me, I make sure to use a light hand when I first start the gradient and then I concentrate more glitter on the the area where I want it to be more dense.
