Classy Glitter Gradient Nail Art

So far I've been a bit shy to put on heavy glitter based polishes coz its a bit-o'-pain to remove them. But I see these gorgeous polishes lying in my stack and the temptation become too strong to resist! So here I am with another glitter mani with some polishes I had won in Mrs.Rexy's giveaway. (The first I won everrrrrr!!)

Base: Violet Divine
I am not fond of this base. Its streaky and uneven :-/
But since I was gonna cover with glitter, I didnt mind it

First I layered Icing's Tiger's Blood in a single light layer over my nails.
Next I layered Icing's Epic Winning halfway down my nails.
Then I dabbed a bit of Icing's Rock star from Mars near the tips.
Lastly I applied Kleancolor Chunky Holo Fuchsia half way down again.

The second, third and fourth bottles were used.
(Pic is from my winnings post here)

The pink sheen and glitter is from the Kleancolor C.Holo Fuschia 

I am completely in love with this gradient glitter mani. Its very suitable for weddings and occasions which call for a bit of bling.

(*I think this mani is perfectly apt for an Indian function/bride where a girl has a lot going on her hands (mehndi, loads of other jewellery, heavy embroidered clothes encrusted with crystals etc) and may not wanna change her mani often for each function/occasion. I base colour like this would suit most clothes and the gradient glitter just about gives that classy bling without going OTT. Plus since its glitter, it lasts longer on nails too*)

Like it??


  1. I love it,it's so blingy!! Wish I had the patience to wait for my polish coats to dry :P

    1. :) these dried surprisingly quicker. U shud get Seche Vite top helps polish dry out super fast

  2. Yes I like it but would hate it to take it off. ;-)

  3. I love glitter polish and this combination looks gorgeous. I hate when it comes to clean glitter polish off...well, even if I use foil it is very hard to get them of of the nails! Have an amazing month begin!

    1. thank u! Hope u hav a good month too!
      To remove glitter check back here on thursday :D

  4. The glitters are amazing. Nice gradient.

  5. earlier i was scared on taking glitters off bt foil really works well for me .. just moisturize my cuticles once the polish is removed... love the mani.. :)

    1. I m jus scared of soaking my nails in acetone :-/
      But I have a better way coming up ;)

  6. I wouldn't have thought to use these glitters together--it looks great!
