This time around, I decided to do a gradient manicure, because it's been a while since I last tried one. I've worn this combo before, but this time around, I added some Sally Hansen Gem Crush in Big Money in between my larger glitter layers. I think it gave this mani a lot of depth, but in hindsight, I would've made it the bottom layer. Also, I would've taken pics in natural light. Oo.

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
2 Coats Revlon Bare Bones
2 Coats SOPI Sugar Plum Faeries Gone Wild
1 Coat Sally Hansen Gem Crush Big Money
1 Coat SOPI Sugar Plum Faeries Gone Wild
1 Coat Seche Vite

Big Money is an ideal polish for a gradient manicure like this. I've tried to get into other shades of the Gem Crush collection, but none of them jumped out at me like this one did. It paired beautifully with Sugar Plum Faeries Gone Wild.  Gradient manicures are a fun take on glitter... A bit more sophisticated and definitely wearable by just about everyone... and they're super easy to do!

What's your favorite way to wear glitter polish?
