Hey guys, today I wanted to share this cute manicure I did. Originally I was gonna do a purple manicure to support Epilepsy Awareness. So Instead of just doing 1 manicure in honour of Epilepsy Awareness From April 1st to the 5th I will be posting only purple manicures. I don't care what I had scheduled to post next week, cause this subject is very dear & near to my heart. If you wish you support my project & you decide to do 1 purple manicure or all 5 for the week, I would truly appreciate it & I am sure my dear friend April would to. Also if you are please let me know in the comments I would love to check out the manicures you come up with!
So on to todays post, this manicure is something I wasn't sure how it would turn out. I already had the accent finger in mind but I didn't know I was gonna do a reverse gradient until I was picking out the glitter & applying it.
So the products I used are listed in order of use:
Base Coat: LCN- Super Hardener
Base Colour: OPI Can't Find My Czechbook
Accent Nail: OPI - Crown Me Already
First Gradient Glitter: Mason - 96
Second Gradient Glitter: OPI - Polka.com
Top Coat: Natali - 60 Second Top Coat
So the first thing I did was applying my base coat to protect my natural nails from staining from this very pigmented blue polish. After applying my base coat I applied two coats of my base colour on my thumb, pointer, middle & pinkie fingers, then applied my accent nail colour to my ring finger & let it completely dry. Once the base colour was dry I applied my first glitter using the technique I do for every gradient manicure. I make sure the brush is covered in a lot of product & fully wipe off all the product on 1 side of the brush, then I going in either at the free edge or the nail near the cuticle & get the coverage I desire . Then I dip the brush back into the polish wipe of both sides leaving very little product & in small strokes applying the polish toward the middle of the nail. Once that was dry I took the second glitter & did the same process. Then I applied my top coat. & Taa daa!
I must admit I just got OPI Crown me already, & It needs to be said that it is now my go to silver. It has such beautiful glittery coverage. <3 I just adore it.
