Purple Bling

I had a wedding to attend on Sunday,
and little time to do a proper nail art.
So I decided to do a gradient glitter mani to jazz up my simple pink dress.

Natural daylight.

The next 3 are taken indoors:

And here is the tutorial for a glitter gradient mani:

Bottles used:
OPI Princesses Rule!,
Estessimo TINS 006 The Amethyst,
Estessimo TINS 064 The Immediately Sexy,
Nail Colour NK-20

Tip 1:
Usually, I tend to choose OPI Princesses Rule! as the base colour cos of its shimmer.
Other colour alternatives are OPI Happy Anniversary, OPI Dazzle Me, OPI Upfront and Personal.

Tip 2:
Divide the nail into thirds, and paint the gradient accordingly.

Step 1: Paint base coat.
Step 2: Paint 1 coat of base colour.

Step 3: Using the medium-tone polish, randomly paint approximate two-thirds of your nail.

Note: Pls don't be precise when following the imaginary one-third line. This gives it the blended effect.

Step 4: Using the darkest-tone polish, randomly paint the last one-third of your nail.
Optional Step: You can top it up with a clear holo glitter polish for added bling
