Glitter Gradient with Studs

Thanks to people for giving me glitter ideas! I saw a nail design here on Dressed Up Nails that I completely fell in love with! The colours, the gradient, the studs-I love it all. So I tried to recreate it.

I found a Sally Hansen glitter polish called ‘Gilded Lily’ which was perfect for this gradient.


I took lots of photos but none of them seem to capture this mani’s true beauty.




Thanks Whitney for inspiring me with your amazing design!


Nail Challenge Day 17: 3D

Hi beauties! It’s day 17 in Julie’s 30 day nail challenge and the theme is 3D.



I ordered some studs off eBay, both gold and silver in this size and small caviar balls. I chose to use these for my 3D mani as there is a day on caviar. I chose Barry M lilac because it is a favourite of mine, and my feature nail is my FGL prism holo polish. I placed the studs on with tweezers onto tacky clear varnish-much the same way I apply my glequins. Then top coated with 2 coats.

I am useless at keeping up with the links page since I’ve been back at school-hope you can forgive me!
