Purple Gradient Nails

Hello, beauties! I wanted to share with you ladies my newest mani.. I worked hard on it today, and I’m quite proud of it! :D I took 4 different shades of purple, and 2 different types of glitter to achieve it. The picture I took of the polishes is missing one of the glitters I used. It was China Glaze’s Silver Lining.

Polishes used, (L to R) CG “Reggae to Riches”, CG “Sugar Plums”, CG “Flying Dragon”, Finger Paints “Hue Left A Message?”, Jordana “Touch of Pink”

I know it doesn’t look like “Flying Dragon” would look good with it, because its so neon, but I used it for my “middle shade” and it turned out wonderful! Here’s the finished product:

To create the “faded” effect, I used the tip of a cosmetic wedge, and just dabbed it on slowly, blending it all together. Then I took the CG “Silver Lining” and put it on the bottom half, and the FP “Hue Left A Message?” and put it on the top half.

This was my first attempt at gradient nails, and I was really impressed with the outcome. I’m sure I’ll be doing this again. :) Thanks for reading!
