Will definitely do! Once I stop being lazy and actually paint my nails that is... I've needed to do my toes for about 2 weeks now, and currently can't because I have a really bad cut near the cuticle on one of my toes :smileysad:

Cute! I love that multi paired with that base color! ^_^ I think you did quite well and I definitely got the idea of the glitter fading!

Re: Glitter Gradient Nails?

Hey Arielaaaaaaaa - I have all 3, and I would go w/ Sparktacular (bottom multicolor). Because it has smaller glitters mixed in and a clear base, it's better for beginners trying to do gradients. The middle one has a bunch of large glitters, so it's harder to get them placed where you want (you have to dab, not pull!) and the top red one has a red base, so it will show up on your pink polish and it will be harder to get that ombre effect. 

 

I've done some gradients w/ the bottom one and they also work out well. Just remember it's hard to screw up a glitter gradient, so go for it!

Thanks @Candacebt. I will most likely do that one because i can't open the other two haha! They are screwed on super tight and i'm the only one home right now haha!
