Dragonfly & Glitter Manicure


I think I've stumbled upon a look that I really quite like... a glitter gradient combined with little water decals as accents! This one uses my dragonflies from YRNails.

I just received a lovely parcel from Models Own in the post as I took advantage of their half price sale, and one of the polishes I chose was the lovely, holo-sprinkled purple glitter Southern Lights. Perfect for a gradient! I started off with a coat of OPI's Care To Danse as my sheer base, then sponged Southern Lights on top.

For the glitter gradient I did two layers of sponging and then painted a small amount of the glitter on top for extra sparkle. In retrospect I would have skipped the painting as I ended up with a very thick layer on my nails! But overall I am very happy to be able to look down at my nails and see sparkles and dragonflies ^_^
