Zoya Brooklyn & Cosmo!

Glitter gradients are the best! Here I started with Zoya Brooklyn and then added a bit of Zoya Cosmo starting at the base of my nails. This look reminds of a gorgeous jewel encrusted ball gown, something you could wear on the red carpet; I love it!
I am a voracious reader. You can check out what I'm reading on my Goodreads profile!

Glitter Gradient With Sation Tira Miss-U & Tall Dark & Has Some

Sation Tall Dark & Has Some is perhaps my all time favorite glitter topper. (This is the fourth time I've used it!) I decided to pair it with Sation Tira Miss-U, a new but already beloved edition to my stash. Pretty combo & you just can't go wrong with a super easy glitter gradient in my opinion!

Glitter Gradient With JENsations Rainbow Sprinkles & Sation Off The Record Pink

Here's a pretty & delicate glitter gradient that I love! I started with a base of Sation Off The Record Pink then topped it with one coat of the fabulous Rainbow Sprinkles from JENsations. (You can see my previous post layering it over a berry jelly polish here.) Still available from her Etsy store for $8. I've got my eye on Turn Off the Lights too. Hurry & place your orders before November 3 when she'll take her last orders before a long hiatus!

Green Gradient Nails

I love gradient nails of all varieties. Here I started with a base of Sation Plenty Of Frogs, then added BB Couture Poison Ivy with a slightly damp makeup sponge. Next some Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Jumpin Jade & finally Zoya Storm. Gradients are pretty fool proof & easy enough to do on both hands. A great technique that never fails to look great!

Quick Glitter Gradient

Glitter gradients always look lovely & take very little time to accomplish. Definitely my go to look when I want a little bit of bling in a hurry. This version started with Essie Limited Addiction, then I topped it off with OMG Gorgeous from The Painted Nail By Nubar.

Layering With Sation Tall Dark & Has Some & Stirring Silver

This is one coat of Sation Stirring Silver topped with a gradient of Sation Tall Dark & Has Some. It's a very unique glitter with medium black circles, tiny turquoise glitter, & large turquoise shards in a clear base. So cool & similar in type to a favorite from last year, Sation Ego Friendly. I love this combination!

Sation Holiday Spirit OLD FORMULA Glitter Gradient

If you ever find a bottle of the OLD Sation Holiday Spirit, buy it! I like the current version too but the old formula is still one of my top 5 favorite polishes. Here I've done a simple glitter gradient using the old formula. I love this manicure so much!!

My Second American Apparel Sheer Gradient

The American Apparel Sheer collection is very fun to play with. I decided to do another gradient like this one. Here I used Zuma Beach & just added a few strokes of Pacific Beach. Super easy, impossible to mess up & I love the results!

American Apparel Buried Treasure Nails


Glitter gradients are my favorite easy way to get fancy nails in a hurry. I love how this one turned out! I used American Apparel Pacific Beach & Meteor Shower.
I decided these nails reminded me of buried pirate treasure & I thought it might be cool to add a coat of American Apparel Pacific Beach on top of the glitter for a more pronounced underwater effect. I scratched it off in a couple of spots to let the gold shine through. These sheer polishes are so fun!

American Apparel Sheer Gradient


The American Apparel Sheer collection is very fun to play with. Here I used Manhattan Beach for the base & just added random strokes of Moonlight Beach. Super easy, impossible to mess up & I love the results!
Mushrooms are strange! These popped up overnight in my garden. Do any of you know what kind they might be?

Layering With Icing After Party & A Couple Of Sations

Icing After Party was an impulse buy that I really love. Shards of multicolored glitter in a clear base. The formula is very good for this type of glitter & I had no application issues.

I first tried two coats over Sation Heather. Very pretty!
 
 
Matte version!
Next I tried a a gradient over Sation Ring Around The Horsie. Also awesome!
 
Wally photobomb!
