It's tricky sometimes, when I order polishes from Etsy. I have an extreme affinity for glitter so glitter is what I get. What do I do though to make said polishes interesting for everyone though? My answer is usually layer it over an unconventional colour or do a gradient. The Hungry Asian Vote for Purple gets gradient!
My question to you: what else can I do with awesome glitters other than layering and gradients?
Anyway, let's take a look at Vote for Purple. It's super pretty with a ton of lilac glitter in micro and small hexes. I chose Sally Hansen Celeb City here cos I thought the silver and lilac would be nice together. And they are! For the gradient here, I used my normal technique (kitty, it's hard to type when you're head butting my hands. I'll pat you in a minute) whereby I paint the top two thirds of my nail, then half, then the top third. With a glitter in a clear base you can get a good gradient going like this.
The Verdict: This one was so pretty to wear, I'm a fan. I have to find different ways to show off glitter like this though.
This gradient is so cute!ReplyDelete
I love it! I need to do gradients with my glitters more often!ReplyDelete
