Time for this weeks challenge which is Glitter topper or flakie!
I chosen Glitter and the Pattern prompt for me was a Reciprocal gradient.
I have never really tried this technique with a gradient effect before so I was eager to give it ago.
Here are the items I used.
Ciate glitter in Neon Glitter.
Sinful Colors polish in Snow me white.
Sally Hansen polish in Starcrossed.
Barry M textured effect polish in Countess.
2True sequins glitter polish in Tyra.
Nail art tape and nail guides.
Make up sponge.
I started with a white base coat then when dry I created the gradient effect using the 2 polishes Barry M and 2True on to the makeup sponge then applying them to the thumb and middle and little nail.
I did this step about 2 times then when dry fully I placed the tape on the nails and went back over the nails with the make up sponge but this time tuning the sponge the other way so the darker colour is on the light colour to create the reciprocal gradient effect..
Carefully removing each tape while wet.I then went over the nails with the Sally Hansen glitter polish.
The pointer finger and ring finger I used 2 coats of the Ciate polish then while wet I sprinkled on the Ciate glitter.
More posts shortly.
Have a lovely day!
