Nails: Purple Glitter Gradient

My first official post, hopefully with more to come soon! I intend to add makeup reviews, OOTD's, little DIY projects, and more NOTD's--I'll try to update as often as possible :).



Materials:
Sally Hansen's Lacey Lilac
Sally Hansen's Purple Potion
Sinful Colors in Frenzy
makeup sponges

Steps:
1. paint the tip of a makeup sponge with lacey lilac, and gently dab on nails about halfway up.
2. use another corner of the sponge and paint on purple potion about 1/4 of the way up. Wait for it to dry, and apply another coat about halfway up the first coat.
3. once dry, lightly apply the glitter polish halfway up the nail, then at 1/4 up the nail.
4. line the rim of your nails in purple potion (didn't do this in the pictures, but it looks nicer).
5. apply a topcoat.

Annd there you have it! I'm pretty impressed with my cheap $80 Canon point-and-shoot--I had a DSLR but sold it a year ago with unrealized hopes of upgrading.. maybe this summer though~

    This is very pretty! I tried a layered thing once, but I really like it with the glitter tips!
