Hello! Today's my switcheroo mani - it was supposed to be galaxy today, but I mixed it up by accident so today I have glitter nails to show :)
I wasn't sure what to do for glitter, honestly, I thought about not painting the whole nail, cause then i'd dread taking it off, so I wanted to do something along the lines of french tips, but what then?
What I came up with something that I haven't seen around (unless you have?). I thought it was totally unique and all haha, but that's just me. We shall find out won't we?
BTW I found a better place to take pics - the kitchen! The lighting is brighter and not dull like in the room I'm always in.
So let me fill you in on this random design. I started with one super thick coat of OPI Absolutely Alice and then etched some hearts out with a needle when the polish was tacky (very important!). Also, did you know you can create this gradient with just Absolutely Alice only?
Just a quick run down, all you need is nail polish remover! Dip a cotton bud in nail polish remover and lightly brush over the glitter to remove the colour and voila! Instant gradient nails :)
I added some sparse silver glitter to the end because AA is dense and wouldn't spread nicely. I added a tiny bit of OPI Divine Swine to the tips just cause haha. Finish with a topcoat and all done!
I hope you like this look, tell me what you think below!
