31DC2017: Day 17 – Glitter

Hey, y’all! I tried 5 different things for the glitter prompt, and NOTHING was cooperating. So this simple nail art is what I eventually came up with!

I used one coat of Zoya Dream, a deep sapphire blue with tiny holographic flakes, as undies for my gradient.

I did 4 coats of the gradient using Dream and Zoya Storm, a black with the same tiny holo flakies. On the fourth coat, I gave the sponge a little squeeze to pull some of the color back out and dabbed that on. It made the color look a little richer rather than silvered out.

Working on nail at a time, I applied a thin layer of regular top coat and placed these silver holo loose glitters. I wasn’t trying to work in any specific pattern or anything, so it was far less frustrating and time-consuming than glitter placement usually is.

That’s all for today! Thanks for looking!
