Reverse glitter gradient manicure

Here's a quickie glitter art post for the weekend!

I've done a few glitter gradient mani's but this is my first ever reverse version. It requires the same application method but starting from the base of the nail rather than the tip, working one coat of glitter polish half-way down the nail, then finishing with another layer of glitter only going one-third of the way down the nail. 

I find glitter gradients such an easy way to dress up a plain manicure and I was really pleased with this regal combination of purple and gold:

Thanks for looking!

    1. Funny you should talk about broken nails. I just broke my pinky nail the other day so I've now got a full set of nubbins!
