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.

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

Apply a base color of your choice. I used Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure in “Pink Pong.”

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 few dotting tools and colors of your choice apply dots all over the nails. Apply larger and more concentrated dots toward the tips of the nails and smaller and more sparse dots towards the cuticles. I used a medium and small sized dotting tool and Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails in “Heart of Stone”, Sinful Colors’ “Thimbleberry” and “Pink Forever”, and Essie’s “Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Lo.”

After applying a few dots of each color go back in and add more towards the tips so there are less gaps if needed.

Block Gradient Nails

Start off with a base coat, I used Seche Clear’s “Crystal Clear Base Coat.”

I applied some latex tape around my nails but this is optional, it just makes clean up later in the end. I used Pueen’s “Latex Tape.”

With three colors of your choice, in a shade that goes from light to dark, apply thick stripes going vertically across the nail. It is easiest to use the nail polish brush with the latex tape since the lines don’t need to look perfect just yet. I used Sinful Color’s “Soul Mate”, “Pink Forever” and “Thimbleberry.”

Then, remove the latex tape. I used Tweezers to do this.

With a striper brush and a metallic polish, paint stripes where the colors meet. I used Winstonia’s “Short” striper brush and Essie’s “Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Lo.”

Lastly, apply a top coat, I used Seche Vite’s “Dry Fast Top Coat.”
