White Gradient and Glitter Elegant Nails

Here's a classy elegant manicure perfect for weddings or any formal occasions. This involved a lot of glitter too so be prepared to get noticed from the all bling bling!

First I did 2 coats of base color with the nude and white polishes. I love Formula X polishes as they are very creamy and nice to apply. I got this Kinetics polish from one of my subscription boxes and its not bad too but the polish is a bit thick and it requires a longer time to dry.

Once the nude color is dried, I used a sponge to create the gradient effect using the same white polish. As usual, I put tape around my nails to protect the skin so I would have minimal clean up to do!

On the 4th nail with the white base, I add some gold nail studs around the top rim along the cuticle for an extra kick for this design.

On the rest of the nails, I couldn't help but added some chunky glitter over the gradient and a gold chunky glitter on the thumb. I really like putting a coat of glitter over any gradient to "soften" out the look (a.k.a. hide some imperfections!). After applying top coat then we are done!

Polishes Used:
Nude - Kinetics
White - Sephora Formula X
Gold Glitter - OPI
Clear Glitter - Revlon Transforming Effects
Gold Studs - Sally Hansen
