Gradients, Glitter, and Striping Tape

Hi everyone!

For today’s nails I started with a plan of doing geometric nails and it morphed until it became more about gradients than about anything geometric. You’ll have to excuse my slightly poorly lit photos – my lighting setup didn’t move with me so I had to make do. You’ll be seeing a few posts like this but it’ll get better! I already got a couple of lamps although I’m struggling to get my hands on good bulbs. Painted Fingertips | Glitter, gradients, and tape

To create this look, I started off with a base of Sinful Colors Mint Apple on all my nails. on my ring finger and thumb, I did a glitter gradient using Wet n Wild The Gold & The BeautifulPainted Fingertips | Glitter, gradients, and tape

On my pinkie, I did a gradient using Mint Apple along with Sinful Colors Savage and Essence Break Through. I topped it with a coat of The Gold & The Beautiful. For my middle and index fingers, I stuck down some striping tape before adding the gradient of Savage and Break Through, topped it with The Gold & The Beautiful, and then peeled away the tape. Painted Fingertips | Glitter, gradients, and tape

I really liked the colour combination and I think the glitter makes this look work even better! Painted Fingertips | Glitter, gradients, and tape
