Glitter Gradient Design

Published February 12, 2013 by beginnersnailart

Hi everyone. I’ve got a really quick and easy design for you today, and since it’s nearly Valentine’s day I’ve used pink and red. This design looks great and its perfect for a night out. I love how eaay gradient/ombré nails are and this is even easier the normal design. For it you’ll need a coloured polish and a glitter polish of your choice. I used Nails Inc’s St James and Barry M’s Rose Quartz Glitter. Enjoy!

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial, thanks for looking, Kirsteen. Happy Valentine’s Day!
