Glitter Gradient

whoa! is this two posts in one day? -yes. it is. =) oh, and check out my post from earlier: here, if you missed it.

i finally did my nails today...so... =)


i used Essie's Chinchilly for the tips & base of my ring finger. then i used Massini's Sex Symbol silver glitter, Cover Girl's Disco Dazzle, and topped it off with China Glaze's Fairy Dust & topcoat. since my first attempt at 3d acrylic nail art, i havent touched my stuff; so i decided to try to make a flower on my ring finger. - - - fail. its all off-centered -__-

here's my nails before i attempted the flower;

this picture was taken earlier this afternoon so the lighting is different from the other picture.. =P and my nails look awkwardly short here...

like the blog title says...this is supposed to be a glitter gradient. im not good at doing gradients...so i dont know if i would consider this a gradient fail or not. what would you consider it? overall, i actually kinda like this mani.. =)

enjoy your day!,
