Start off with a base coat, I used Essie’s “Grow Stronger” base coat.

Apply a base color of your choice, or in my case, a color that matches your prom dress. I used Migi’s Nail Art Pen “Baby Blue” (I don’t recommend using this polish, it was extremely difficult to use but it was the only color I had that matched my prom dress).

With a glitter polish of your choice, apply some to the tips of your nails. I started off with a small glitter, I used a mini nail polish by Sephora by OPI that I do not have the name for.IMG_2018

Apply a second layer to the tip of the nail because you want this part of the nail to have the most glitter on it.

Then, wipe a majority of the polish off of the brush and apply some lightly below the tip of the nail to make the gradient effect.

You can stop there or you can add more glitter with a chunkier glitter polish. Apply some of the chunky glitter polish to a makeup sponge or a sponge tip applicator normally used for eyeshadow. I used Emori’s “Silver Glitter”.IMG_2024

Sponge this onto the nail, try to get the bigger pieces of glitter closer to the tip of the nail and the smaller farther from it.

Apply a top coat, I used Essie’s “Gel-Setter” top coat.
