Today's post is going to be all about creating a glitter gradient. I know I've seen multiple tutorials on how to create them, so if you've seen them as well, sorry, here's another one but for the ones of you who haven't take a good look!
Things you will need:
- Q-tips or cosmetic sponge (I use Q-tips, I think they're easier and cheaper)
- Glitter nail polish (kind of obvious lol) and a regular polish if you want a base coat color
After your base coat is completely dry, on to the glitter! Take your Q-tip and get the tip of it wet but not dripping wet. If the Q-tip is wet then the glitter won't stick to it as much and will transfer for your nail nicely.
Once your Q-tip is wet, open your bottle of glitter and put some polish on to the tip then start to apply to your nail. I start at the very tip of my nail and pat downward toward the cuticle and keep repeating this process until you get the effect that you like. I used Sephora by OPI's Spark-takular!
The last step, as always is a good clear top coat! And a great way to remove this mani once you're ready to switch it up, would be to use the foil method which I posted about not too long ago :)
I hope this was helpful to those of you who were wanting to learn!
PS- this is my birthday manicure!! :)
