Up first let me show you the base. This is OPI's Samoan Sand.
Samoan Sand is eerily close to my skin tone. It makes my fingers look super long because of that. Then to liven things up a bit, I did a glitter gradient on the ends of my nails in Maybelline Color Show Golds Night Out.
To create the gradient I wiped off the brush so it was almost dry, and started at the middle of my nail, swiping down. I then did the same thing, but starting a little further down. Finally I layered on some thick glitter at the tips of my nails, and voila, pretty gradient. Golds Night Out was the awesome for this gradient. It has gold microglitter, small gold hex glitter, and some medium holographic gold hex glitter. In the right light you get this awesome rainbow flash that makes me swoon.
I have some new goodies to show you, as I've been on a bit of a polish bender lately.
Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee
