Pink & Holo Glitter Gradient

Hello everyone! If you notice the time stamp on this post, you might wonder why I am awake at 5 in the morning, and I can tell you that the answer is not that I woke up early, but that I have not yet gone to bed, because I was trying to finish an essay. I’m not done, but I have given up for the night.

Anyways, while I would love to go to bed, first I thought I would write up this quick post while my hair dries a little bit, since I just washed it (if I left my hair to do in the morning, I’d just skip it… yuck).

So, for your viewing pleasure today, as the title suggests, I have a pink and holographic glitter gradient mani! This is two coats of Julep in Cameron, and the holo glitter is L.A. Colors Color Craze in Star Lite. I put the glitter on in three consecutively shorter sections, and topped with Seche Vite, which I’m sure is the only reason that my nails finally dried, since, including top and base coat, that means there are 7 coats of polish on my nail tips!




I really love the outcome of this manicure, however, the thick polish on the tips really bugged me. Unfortunately, by about 2/3 through today, I’d peeled these off in thick sheets, so all my hard work didn’t last more than 24 hours! Sad smile

Oh well, it looked good. I’m sure this would last much longer on someone who doesn’t care so much that the tip of their nail is almost half a centimetre thick! O_o Haha! Now I’m wearing my Nerd Lacquer in Home of the Untempered Schism, which is super glittery and pretty. I probably already have swatches on here, if you click through to “Nerd Lacquers” in the topics on the side bar, but if you can’t find them and want them, leave me a comment.

Also, my lovely followers, please don’t forget to follow, preferably on GFC, but I also have Hellocotton and Blog Lovin’. And don’t forget to vote on my poll in the right sidebar!

Thanks for reading <3
