Ninja Polish ~ Nebula - in a gradient


Rimmel ~ Purple Addict and Ninja Polish ~ Nebula

Here’s another glitter gradient I did, because I really like them!

My base colour was Purple Addict from Rimmel’s Lycra Pro series. It’s a shimmery purple with red undertones. It took two easy coats to achieve desired opacity, and drying time was pretty average. I was very positively surprised over this polish – it dried up to the most beautiful finish. Seriously: I gazed at my nails for about an hour (while watching Pulp Fiction) before I did the gradient.

Here it is. There’s no top coat on it yet:


Shiny and pretty and purple, just the way I like it. I like glitter too though, so let’s move on to that.

I used Ninja Polish’ Nebula, which I got from my very good friend the Nail Ant. I’m very glad that I own this glitter. It’s duochromatic, and shifts between green and purple, and the glitter in it is just amazing.

I sponged my gradient on, and reversed my ring finger and thumb, just because I can :D



I couldn’t get Nebula to flash her true colours for the camera. She looks blue here, but she isn’t. In low lights she flashes all the purpleliciousness, and when I twist my fingers she shows her green side.


I think I have to try Nebula for a full mani instead of just a gradient, because I really want to show you her true colours!



This is my first Ninja Polish but it will definitely not be the last. What about you girls? Are you a Ninja Polish fan?

  3. I saw swatches of Ninja polishes 2 weeks ago, and I must say that it's the most interesting glitters that I've seen ever and I think that they're beautiful enough to try them. so I start to wait when you will show a full mani with Nebula :)
