Glitter Gradient Nails

Hi everyone! Sorry for being MIA for so long, I have been getting back into the grove of school. I will be uploading the nail videos and picture tutorials that I had time to capture but not edit yet. Hopefully I can get back on schedule very soon! But for now enjoy these super simple Glitter Gradient nails that will look good on any nail shape for any occasion.

With a glitter of your choice, apply a light layer over a third of the nail. I used Sephora by OPI in “Only Gold for me Top Coat.”

Apply some of that glitter polish on a makeup sponge and then dab that on to about half of the nail, making it more concentrated as you get towards the tip.

With a red, green or yellow polish paint two curves on the nails and fill it in towards the tip of the nail. My red polish is an unknown brand and name but it is shaped like an apple! The green is Sally Girl’s “812165.”

With a brown color and welding tool or toothpick create a curved line for the stem where the two curves meet. I used Delta Ceramcoat’s “Spice Brown” acrylic paint.

Eclipse Nails

Hi everyone! This tutorial is for eclipse nails, I had painted these the week of the eclipse but never managed to get this video up until now. The hardest part about these are the circles if you are a perfectionist like me. I hope you all enjoy!

IMG_20170903_173153_718

Start off by applying a base coat. I used Orly’s “Bonder Rubberized Base Coat.”

fullsizeoutput_7d6.jpeg

Apply a dark polish as the base color, I used Julep’s “Ilsa.”

fullsizeoutput_7d7

Then, apply large yellow dots on the center of all of the nails. I used a large dotting tool and Delta Cermacoat’s “Pale Yellow.”

fullsizeoutput_7d8

With the same dotting tool and your base color create the phases of the eclipse. The thumb and pinky should just be the sun. Place a dot on one side of the circle (opposite of the other nail) on the pointer and ring finger to create a half moon shape. Then the middle finger should be a full eclipse with a dark dot right in the center of the yellow dot.

Lastly, apply a top coat. I used Orly’s “Polishield All-In-One Ultimate Top Coat.”
