Fall Glitter Gradient With Butter LondonDecember 01, 2013
For today I have a simple glitter gradient manicure, I chose these colors because they seemed to suit the season so well. I created this mani last week while it was still sunny outside, and I really love how these photos came out. Although it's a simple manicure, I really loved how it turned out and I hope you will too!
To create this manicure I applied China Glaze Prey Tell as the base (3 coats), it's a gorgeous dark burgundy, so vampy and deep, I really loved it! I don't know why but I am pretty obsessed with these vampy shades lately. I already have a few colors which are quite similar to this one, but I really love them all. The formula was a bit sheer for me, and eventually I ended up using three coats of it, but I really love how shiny and glossy it looked.
Then I created a glitter gradient using Butter London West End Wonderland, it's a lovely mix of gold and orange micro glitter in clear base. I've had it for quite a long time but just now decided to use it.
I applied the glitter at the cuticles, pulling it towards the center of the nail to create this look. To finish the design and smooth it out, I applied one coat of Poshe.
I feel like this combination of colors is working so well and that's it's suitable for fall. Despite my nails being super long on these photos, I kinda like it and I think that dark colors look really nice on this length (lucky for me they will grow very fast after I file them this week). I know not everyone likes nails that long, and I have to admit that they look better in photos then in real life, but I enjoy painting these claws, it gives me a lot of great space to play with beautiful nail polish and to create nail art lol ;)
I hope you liked my simple fall mani and enjoyed the photos. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful week!
