2nd Glitter Gradient

I tried this design in an earlier post where I used Tongue & Chic by China Glaze and Kissed At Midnight by Nicole by OPI. The images I took didn't look flattering and the overall look I was disappointed in. So I gave it another go when I received Techno by China Glaze in the mail. It was part of the Electropop collection but I think they're re-releasing it for a mini collection of glitters called Pop Tops or something like that, so you can buy it in stores again. But I got mine off of eBay. I had been wanting to do a solo mani with just At Vase Value because it's such a nice light blue so I paired it with Techno and got this:

I'm liking this one a lot better. These were taken indoors under incandescent lighting, better images will taken in natural lighting - I always end up painting before bed! I used the sponging technique to apply the glitter rather than painting it directly on because it was much easier to spread it around and the sponge soaked up the excess clear polish.

  1. This is a great combo, I am a big fan of glitter gradients particularly over pastels, they look so delicate and pretty!
