OPI gradient with glitter on top



OPI gradient with glitter on top

I hadn’t quite had enough of Cute Little Vixen that I wore yesterday, so I decided to make a glitter gradient with it today. (Check it out with holo on top here).

But let me start out with showing you what my mani ended up looking like:


Do you like it? I’m not totally convinced myself.
I made a gradient with two OPIs first: Cute Little Vixen and Where Did Suzi’s Mango? That ended up looking pretty messy. I think it’s because the orange is a crème and the red is a shimmer – it didn’t quite work.

But glitter fixes many manis! So I added a layer of Pretty & Polished “Pumped up Pumpkin”, which is a clear base with orange and red glitters in it. I got it as a gift from my dear friend M from Lauriestrode’s Fun with Nails. She’s a doll!



The glitter helped a lot – and it’s on purpose that I don’t show you the mani without the glitter! :D


Here are the three polishes I used for this mani:


Tell me honestly please: Do you like it?
