I am baaaaack! I am so sorry for disappearing off the face of the earth. Close to the end of the challenge my cousin and her gorgeous little boy (Wian, our godson) came to visit. I got completely engrossed in spending time with them and after the craziness that was #31DC2014 I definitely needed the break. I will do a roundup post soon and I will back date it. Tuesday Stamping will be back next week. For now, I am just easing back into it and I have made the decision to have a lot more fun with it.
I love gradients but I am not sure if I have ever been able to nail a glitter gradient. So I am combining a normal gradient with a glitter gradient and sharing my attempt with you.
I started with a pink gradient using Sinful Colors – Forget now and Sinful Colors – Truth or dare. Once that was dry I added H&M – Stay golden. I started the glitter at my tips except for my ring finger where I started at the cuticle. Topcoated and done. What do you think?
Sinful Colors – Forget now
This is 3 coats with no topcoat. It is a pink jelly packed with magenta / blue and some silver shimmer. This is just solo beautiful. Mine is a little on the thick side but it is one of the bottles I bought and only realised afterwards that it had obviously been used and not closed properly in store. It’s still totally fine to use though and I didn’t have any problems with application.
Sinful Colors – Truth or dare
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. This is a beautiful berry shade with a great formula and is beautifully opaque. It is almost a one coater. I love this shade!
I’d love to hear what you think and also if you have any tips for nailing a glitter gradient.
Thanks for reading!
